Video: Rogers Park, "Ki Hinei Kachomer"

Chicago folksters Rogers Park make an unexpectedly strong impression with their new video for "Ki Hinei Kachomer", the first single from their upcoming album of niggunim and Yiddish songs (currently being crowdfunded on Indiegogo).

Based on an old Chabad nigun for the Yom Kippur prayer, the surprisingly moving and creative project has an equally surprising amount of talent behind it: Matt Dougherty (Against the Current, Pop Evil) produced, renowned cellist Laura Melnicoff is featured, and group members Mordy Kurtz and Yosef Peysin directed the clip with the help of filmmaker Atara Wolf.
