Join us for our first interfaith concert, featuring:
Hal Aqua and The Lost Tribe play klezmer fusion music — an exuberant musical experience, rooted firmly in traditional Jewish modes and melodies and driven by contemporary rhythms and danceable grooves. The versatile musicians who make up The Lost Tribe have a deep respect for their source material, from the evocative tunes of Eastern European Jews and Gypsies to the sinuous rhythms of the Middle East and Mediterranean.
The Zevk Ensemble features Benyamin and Rabia Van Hattum from Abiquiu, New Mexico and several local musicians and singers. Zevk is a Turkish word conveying taste and joy from an uplifted heart. The concert will present traditional illahier based on devotional Islamic poetry from Turkey and the Middle East. The music will be performed on traditional folkloric instruments, including the saz (Turkish lute), oud (Arabic lute), gdulka (Balkan spike fiddle), dumbek (hand drum), tar (frame drum) and riq (Arabic tambourine).
Time and Date: Sunday, November 16, 2014 Arrival: 2:45pm Concert: 3-5pm
Tickets are $10 per person and can be purchased by visiting: goo.gl/2H9MH9
