This site is dedicated to the music and cinema of the Umma Yahud

not much else to say, here we go..

Only after hearing Basya Schechter sing songs from Camp Bnos do you start to see the influence of her own Hasidic past on her music. My suspicions of her past were confirmed by her interview in the movie “leaving the fold”. Basya heads up the band “Pharoah’s Daughter”, she sings in a ton of different languages, Turkish, Ladino, Yiddish, Arabic, Hebrew, French, just to name a few… I’ve seen her perform twice (at the Ashkenazic film festival in Toronto and a guest appearance with Shtreiml in Montreal).

This is a video of Basya singing a tribute to Heschel,

here is a link to her myspace..check it out
