London's Jewish musical heritage celebrated


It is a type of music typically associated with Jewish weddings and Fiddler on the Roof but it seems the quick beats and chirpy tunes are increasing in popularity.

Jewish Music Institute CEO and band leader Joe Loss's daughter Jennifer Jenkel shows BBC London's Brenda Emmanus how the capital's Jewish heritage has spawned a wide range of musical talent, from Ronnie Scott to Amy Winehouse.
