Esta seems to have taken its multicultural approach to the nth degree on Home Made World. The 11-track album incorporates Persian, Yemenite and Iraqi motifs along with rock, jazz and blues.

"We love British rock, but we didn't just want to do a straight cover," says Deshet. "There are all our influences in there too."
Rock fans will, no doubt, also dig the band's version of U2's "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For," which features local rock megastar Rami Kleinstein.
