'The Wolf of Baghdad' , a graphic memoir by Carol Isaacs (aka cartoonist The Surreal McCoy) was chosen by the Guardian as one of the best comics and graphic novels of 2020
Presented live as a motion comic, The Wolf of Baghdad is an audio-visual journey through a Jewish family’s memories of their lost Iraqi homeland. Projections of the graphic memoir are accompanied by live band 3yin playing the music of Iraq and its Jews, an ancient community that lived there for more than two millennia and which is now found in Israel, the UK and beyond.
3yin (pronounced eye-in) is a "ground-breaking 7-piece band performing music from the Jewish communities of the Middle East and North Africa. 3yin brings together a collective of acclaimed instrumentalists from Jewish and Arabic traditions - including Carol Isaacs herself on accordion, jazz cellist Shirley Smart and storywheel's Keith Clouston on oud - to create a new fusion of acoustic, electric melody and groove."
‘An enthralling and moving combination of art and music. It’s magical.’ Claudia Roden, Writer and Cultural Anthropologist
'All the performances are world-class but special mention should go to Keith Clouston's tasteful oud playing...' Bill Badley, Songlines dvd/cd review, May 2020
'The Wolf of Baghdad' is available as a dvd-ROM from The Surreal McCoy - the soundtrack is also available on cd.
