“I knew no precedent of a Yiddish song organically growing out of a Negro Spiritual, but inside my own head—and I hesitate to say this, but in my heart—I felt I didn’t particularly need a precedent.”—Anthony (Mordechai-Tzvi) Russell

“Convergence” combines diverse strains of traditional Jewish and African-American music directly at points of spiritual, melodic and textual convergence. Classical vocalist Anthony (Mordechai-Tzvi) Russell, in collaboration with acclaimed Bay Area klezmer trio Veretski Pass, creates a new repertoire of works exploring exile, spirituality, hope and redemption, enhanced by the animation work of San Francisco-based artist Meredith Leich.
