Ashkenaz 2014, Toronto, Canada, starts August 26, 2014
Yes, our favorite North American festival of new Jewish music starts next week, and this year it joins the current century by enabling an actual iPhone "app." Search for it in the Apple Store. That's the minor reason to go. The major reason is new music, ranging from a new music from Veretski Pass, "Lillith, the Night Demon," to music inspired by the Sarajevo Hagaddah, Yiddish "New Wave" from Eastgern Europe, Dudu Tassa from Israel, and more. See you at the Ashkenaz Festival!
