A concept album that explores Briga's father’s Polish/Jewish roots, "wake" delivers with a Turbo Folk edge, wrapped up in heavy Balkan & Morrocan grooves, & polished with lamenting judeo-arabic strings. Wake's sound is the everyday meeting the monumental.

“Wake opens up to the sounds of the middle east thanks to string arranger Tom Cohen, who specializes in this musical style as well as Sephardi culture; all this showcased by a quartet playing on half the album. Wake is tragic, bouncy, danceable, bulgarian, turkish, romanian, métis, classical, contemporary, turbo folk…its all that, on top of being very inspired even without the existential answers.”
