DeLeon Rocks the Boat

One of the reasons I love Deleon so much is that they are a band that doesn’t just play Sephardic music — they use Sephardic music and the Ladino language as a starting point to write original songs, dip into different genres (samba, rhumba, alt-rock, retro-Meat Puppets style, and Joey Bishop-influenced lounge are just a few) and make a whole cultural mess that is derivative of, and resembles, nothing else in the universe.

This is their new video. And it is one more reason why we love them.
