In the number one spot is Junun. This particular album is a staff favorite; it features composers Shye Ben Tzur and Jonny Greenwood from Radiohead backed by The Rajastan Express. With it’s mix of Hebrew, Hindi, and Urdu, and variety tempos; this album brings both a killer brass section and smooth traditional vocals.
