Get ready to celebrate Jewish music like you’ve never heard it before.
Now into its fifth year, MJMF has gathered together the crème de la crème of amazing
musicians who have made the genre world famous.Unique and eclectic compositions performed by exciting musicians from
over 15 countries will create an abundance of unforgettable beats and melodies
- putting their own global stamp on Jewish music in this űber-lively festival.
Over a period of four days (August 24th-28th), Montreal will indulge in MJMF’s endless, zesty music feast- creating all kinds
of savoury Kosher-style sounds filled
with the food of love. It’s coming to you in a huge variety of flavours in over
seven concerts. From Iraqi’n’Roll and Electro-Klezmer-Cumbia – through to
Psychedelic Latvian Yiddish Rock, Russian Soul and Cuban Style Klezmer, MJMF is
serving a giant potpourri of gorgeous galactic Jewish musical groups whose
sounds will fill your ears to their bountiful brim.
On opening night KlezKanada will present one of the most anticipated concerts:
a performance by Der Grovyser Concert Internacionale. It will take place in the
Oscar Peterson Hall. The group is a world sensation with its sixteen Jewish
music instrumentalists and Yiddish song interpreters from Hungary, Israel,
North America, France and beyond.
The list of Jewish music wired to the world’s wizards of the genre also
includes some dazzling gypsy punks, kingly Kuwaiti back-ups to Dudu Tassa, and
so much more.
Once again, Blu and Jewel fly back onto the big bird screen. This time
the couple and their three bird kids end up far from home in search of Jewel’s
family and other macaw friends. Blu’s former owner, Linda Gunderson and her
ornithologist husband, Tulio are out in the Amazon jungle doing their work. But
enemies for the bird come in both human and bird form. Blu’s nemesis includes
Nigel, a cockatoo who can no longer fly due to crashing into a plane – he
blames it on Blu – plots with Gabi, his poison dart frog friend – to track down
Blu and poison him using the Gabi’s poison. Blu finds himself wanting to find
Linda once he gets to the Amazon, and Jewel finds herself wanting to stay in
the Amazon. Blu is not popular with Jewel’s father, and his love of his former
owner appals other birds who view man as an enemy. But Blue eventually proves
them wrong about Linda who in fact helps save the birds from bulldozer death.
The music is fabulous and the animals with their animated dancing moves
makes us want to get up and fly to the bird flock to join them all.
This 3D animation is an adventure comedy directed by Carlos Saldanha. Sergio
Mendes made some of the music happen along with Bruno Mars who played Roberto,
Jewel’s one-time childhood boy friend, joined superbly cast characters’ voices.
Kristin Chenoweth as Gabi stole the show; Jesse Eisenberg as Blu and Ann
Hathaway as Jewel were joined by Jamie Foxx, Andy Garcia, Tracy Morgan, even Rita
Moreno. The film was a cast collective of all-star vocal celebrity. It is a
carnival of Amazonian animation ingenuity that the entire family can enjoy.
