The Klezmatics with Special Guest Joshua Nelson: Brother Moses Smote the Water

March 28, 2018 at 7:30pm
Just in time for Passover, klezmer and gospel collide with brilliant and euphoric results. The gutsy, Grammy-winning band that defines klezmer’s edge teams up with a special guest artist who sings Black-Jewish soul that recalls Mahalia Jackson. A cross-cultural celebration of freedom songs from the Jewish and African-American traditions, illustrating their spiritual common ground while weaving a musical story of inspiration and social action.

“The Klezmatics are wonderful…a piece of genius.” — Pete Seeger
“The next big thing in music.” —Oprah Winfrey
