Jazz band's fighting spirit

    Alex Roth

    The film Defiance dramatised the story of the Bielski Otriad (Brigade), the partisans led by four Jewish brothers who resisted the Nazis in occupied Poland. Now their heroism has inspired a different work — a “jazztronica” composition, The Bielski Suite, from London guitarist, Alex Roth.

    He and brothers Nick (saxophone) and Simon (drums) are trying to raise £4,000 to take the piece on tour, using sponsume, a crowd-funding website which offers donors rewards such as concert tickets or EPs.

    They have called their band Otriad.
