Shortwave | Salaam Shtetl


As Christmas carols flood the airwaves, Palestinian & Jewish comedians Eman and Jess Salomon get us laughing for the Halaladays live on Shtetl.

Musician Ami Yares tells us about Heartbeat– a musical project bringing together Jewish and Palestinian youth in the Holy Land.

And  musicians Idan Raichel (Israel) and Vieux Farka-Touré (Mali) talk about their musical collaboration in an interview for Shtetl with Nicolas Roux.
