About the event

The 23rd celebration of Jewish music delves into the intricate tapestry of klezmer music, drawing from Middle Eastern folk melodies resonating in bustling shuks (marketplaces). These echoes inspired musicians across Eastern Europe. Arabic, Sephardic, Hebrew, and Yiddish songs intertwine, showcasing the profound impact of Middle Eastern modes and rhythms. Special guests Jamie Papish (percussion) and Amos Hoffman (oud) join Hot Pstromi featuring Yale Strom, Elizabeth Schwartz, Gunnar Biggs, Fred Benedetti, and Tripp Sprague.
