In April 2017, Radiohead invited Dudu Tassa to join its US Tour. Dudu embarked on the journey of his life, accompanied by the “Kuwaitis,” a unique musical ensemble consisting of Jews and Arabs, singer Nasreen Qadri, and a camera that documented this once-in-a-lifetime experience from his own personal and intimate perspective.
Alongside the great expectations, glory, and excitement, we discover the intricate connection between Iraqi music and Rock ‘n’ Roll, performed by an Israeli singer and an Arab Muslim singer in the US.
