RebbeSoul (aka Bruce Berger) is a virtuoso multi-instrumentalist who, seemingly, can pick up any stringed instrument and make it sing. With acoustic and electric guitars, bass, balalaika, berimbau, mandolin, oud, saz, and more, RebbeSoul creates a unique and powerful blend of sounds with influences from Eastern Europe, Africa, and the Middle East, with a healthy does of American rock, pop, and jazz for good measure. His music FROM the heart goes directly TO the heart.
Fringe of Blue is RebbeSoul's debut recording from 1995. The acoustic and electric versions of "Avinu" (Avinu Malkeinu) blew listeners away and created a buzz in the world of contemporary Jewish music when first heard. The 14 powerful tracks in this collection include classic Jewish tunes like "Y'rushalayim Shel Zahav," "Kol Haolam Kulo," and "Hatikvah" along with Yiddish gems like "Tum Balalaika," all stunningly interpreted by RebbeSoul. This is a CD that you'll listen to again and again.
