Spring 2015, the Maharaja of Jodhpur, India, hosts Shye Ben Tzur, Jonny Greenwood, Nigel Godrich, Paul Thomas Anderson and a dozen Indian musicians. The team assembles a makeshift studio at the Maharaja’s Fort, and over the following three weeks create the joyous collaboration that becomes the music and film of JUNUN (madness of love). Junun is a cross-cultural, cross religious meeting point between the mystical Islam of Sufi, Qawwali, and Rajasthani Gypsy musicians interwoven with devotional poetries in Urdu, Hebrew, and Hindi. Composed by Shye Ben Tzur, an Israeli musician and poet who lived for 15 years in India, the music was crafted and shaped by the influences of Jonny Greenwood and Nigel Godrich.

With HEAVY METAL PARKING LOT.
