Jewish Music Week: Afro-Semitic Experience

“You’ve never heard anything like it! It’s an American roots jazz band with a difference. These talented Jewish-American and African-American musicians merge their musical roots, creating something exciting, refreshing, and meaningful. Their melodies and grooves, along with their intentional merging of jazz with the spiritual and the sacred, embody the notion that people of different faiths, races, and beliefs can come together, celebrating and building community. Have a refreshment as you enjoy their dynamic mix of originals and arrangements of tunes from Jewish and African-diasporic cultures.”
