NISSIM x Simon Benzaquen, “Sores”

Here’s a different kind of collabo you may never have thought to occur–while Seattle emcee and poet Nissim weaves a tale of slavery and hardships, he invites Rabbi Simon Benzaquen to complement the tale with his Jewish Cantorial style of singing, and his own tale of surviving the holocaust. From Nissim’s self-titled release.
