Joel Edinberg


Joel was originally discovered in the outskirts of Lithuania. Deserted at the age of 3 outside the city of Jonava, he was taken in by a small tribe of wild badgers. They taught him the ways of their tribe, including how to hunt for wild gefilte fish and how to play Klezmer and Balkan music. The tribe was famous for their dancing and music, as well as appearance.  The water they drank had high levels of silver causing their skin to turn blue.  At the age of 16, Wikileaks published the Government’s plans to forcibly buy out his people’s land and mine it for precious dolomite. To save his life, his family sent him off to Boston with a mission to form the Somerville Symphony Orkestar, which would spread the word of his people…and hopefully to help prevent any more filmmakers from ripping off his life’s story.
