First Atlanta Jewish Music Festival! And Greencard DJs will be playing klezmerhop and balkan bangers all night on the outdoor patio.
There will also be some bands:
Imagine the jamming of Phish mixed with the vocal
strength of Pearl Jam and the spiritual lyrics of U2 seasoned with a
Middle Eastern influence and you can begin to describe the unique sound
15th Century Spanish indie rock infused
with the deeply mysterious and entrancing cadences of the ancient
Sephardic tradition. Their music, birthed in Spain before the
Inquisition and raised in pre-WWII Italy, has finally reached maturity
in modern-day Brooklyn.
Girls in Trouble:
Raised on a
combination of Baltimore punk shows and classical violin training, and
drawing on two years spent studying the Bible in Jerusalem while playing
in rock clubs at night, Alicia combines mysticism, a looping pedal,
ancient women's tales and poetry to make beautiful songs about love
4th Ward Afro-Klemzer Orchestra:
Atlanta musical entity, 4th Ward AKO is a nine piece jazz orchestra
playing original compositions and arrangements that combine West African
influenced rhythms with Eastern European Klezmer melodies.
