DJ Socalled, Los Angeles, CA, Dec 18

Avada presents the Los Angeles premiere of master magician
mixologist DJ Socalled. Working turntables, drum machines, accordion,
piano and vocals (yes, all at once), Socalled mixes strains of jazz, funk
and everything else with klezmer, the music he calls home. Sampling
hip hop beats, old Yiddish vaudeville, and bits of klezmer clarinet, he
crafts soundscapes of unexpected worlds colliding for a shtetl-fabulous
early khanike (Hanuka in Yiddish) dance party.

Socalled is joined by LA musicians from Critical Brass Band, and Ancestry
of Sound, and DJ Josh Kun for a live late night session.

Enjoy an Extreme Khanike Wine Tasting, 8 PM
Confrontational wine-tasting in a nightclub setting.
Eight wines and hors de ouevres. RSVP at
extremewinetasting@yahoo.com

Hip Hop Hoodíos
Dec. 31 - Montclair, NJ - First Night (New
Years show)

The upcoming New Years Eve and Jan. 3rd concerts from Latino-Jewish urban music collective Hip Hop Hoodos promise lots of booty-shaking and laughs alike. Comprised of bilingual musicians from Jewish/Latino backgrounds ("hoodo is a twist on the word "judio" - Spanish for "Jew"), the members of Hip Hop Hoodos are linked by a common love for Latin alternative music, or rock and rap "en Espanol". But don't call these guys the Jewish answer to Tenacious D or the Latino respuesta to the Beastie Boys: Hip Hop Hoodos are out to change the notions and preconceptions of Latin music entirely. Following the groups recent standing room-only concerts at Joes Pub and the Brooklyn Academy of Music (as well as packed dates in Chicago and LA), Los Hoodios perform at Makor in NYC on Saturday, Jan. 3rd, and also have a special New Years Eve date at First Night Montclair in New Jersey.

Sophie Solomon & SoCalled, Paris, France, Mar 7, 2007

Solomon and SoCalledJuMu présente
(en accord avec Run Productions)

En concert unique a Paris
Sophie Solomon (Londres) + SoCalled (Canada)
L'avenir de la musique Klezmer

Inevitable rencontre parisienne a l'initiative de JuMu entre notre DJ Canadien national, SoCalled (aka Josh Dolgin), et la tres charismatique Sophie Solomon, violoniste britannique qui s'est illustree notamment au sein des Oi Va Oi, groupe electro londonien. Ces deux personnages, au centre de la nouvelle scene klezmer, n'ont jamais hesite a derouter leurs auditeurs en incorporant a la base de leur univers musical des elements exterieurs afin d'explorer de nouvelles marges. SoCalled, en collectionneur avise, mixe depuis toujours des vieux disques klezmer avec du hip hop et de l'electro mais ne laisse jamais son piano et son accordeon seuls trop longtemps, tandis que Sophie Solomon multiplie les projets les plus improbables sans se preoccuper des etiquettes, a coup de melange de sonorites russes, tziganes ou proche-orientales, sa virtuosite prenant toute sa dimension dans ces melodies tantot lancinantes, tantot enjouees mais toujours d'une grande dignité typique de la musique juive d'Europe de l'Est.

With this uplifting combination of music, Boom Pam is a band that shouldn't be missed. Members, seniors, students $20; nonmembers, general admission $25.

SoCalled
hip hop yiddish
SoCalled est le fondateur du hip hop klezmer. Ce nouveau style mélange l'esprit Yiddish, le rap, le jazz, l'électro, la funk et le rock. Agitateur patenté, " l'échantilloneur " Josh Dolgin souffle un courant d'air frais sur la musique juive. Avec sa manière innée de plaquer un chant traditionnel hassidique sur un breakbeat old school, SoCalled emporte le morceau. Le résultat est dansant, décoiffant, déroutant.

Estelle Goldfarb et Dj Click
électro-klezmer-oriental
Violoniste à l'énergie rock, Estelle Goldfarb allie fougue, mélancolie slave et sensualité orientale. Elle a multiplié les collaborations avec SoCalled, Matisyahu, David Krakauer... Elle entame aujourd'hui une collaboration avec DJ ClicK, Le chineur de sons traditionnels venus des Balkans et des quatre coins du monde. Tous deux se retrouvent sur scène pour un set explosif où fusionnent mélodies klezmer et balkaniques, sonorités orientales beat électroniques.
www.estellegoldfarb.com

Manguina
mélodies judéo-espagnol
Manguina signifie mélodie en hébreu. On y retrouve toute la fougue des rythmes klezmer et la nostalgie des mélodies yiddish qui font revivre un monde perdu.
Par leurs compositions tendance jazz, et les chants qu'ils interprètent en judéo- espagnol, ils donnent à ce grand voyage musical du " yiddishland au sefarland ", des accents originaux.

Une bande de jeunes Toulousains s'inventent des racines klezmer et trafiquent leur passé imaginaire à coup d'effets dub. La sorcellerie sonore du reggae sur tempo quasi ska et une clarinette qui danse le klezmer cassoulet ! (texte by Rkk Nova). Distillant les prestations et la fièvre autour de Toulouse, Anakronic Electro Orkestra fait sa première en mars à Paris au Nouveau Casino. Étonné, éberlué, le public n'a pas mis longtemps pour accrocher et entrer dans la danse.

Golem, ce sont 6 musiciens doux-dingues, " Klezmer-rock-folk-punk ". Ils nous propose une interprétation de la musique klezmer, influencée par les sons issus de l'avant-garde new-yorkaise. Ils ont enthousiasmé deux mille personnes à Paris, dans la cour du musée d'art et d'histoire du judaïsme pour la Fête de la Musique 2007. Ne pas manquer leur 2ème passage à Paris !

jazz-klezmer-funk
Magnifiée par la clarinette de Krakauer, énergisée par SoCalled et par le son rock du Klezmer Madness !, jamais la tradition klezmer n'a semblé si actuelle. Clarinettiste virtuose, David Krakauer est aujourd'hui l'une des figures les plus emblématiques et talentueuses de la mouvance proprement new-yorkaise de la nouvelle musique klezmer. Il s'est génialement occupé à revivifier une tradition ancestrale aux accents les plus radicaux du jazz contemporain.

Electro Morocco & DJ Balagan, WJMF, Washington, DC, 10 Jun 2009

The Washington Jewish Music Festival - 6/4-6/11

Electro Morocco and DJ Balagan
Station 9
1438 U Street NW
June 10, 8:00 pm

Electro Morocco is a unique mixture of intricate electro beats and Middle Eastern flavor, with a retro rock and pop edge. Thriving from the pulse of music born in the Middle East, their sound rises, swells and cuts to the core with a dense recipe of swirling otherworldly sound, the powerful persistence of electro-rock rhythm and stiletto-sharp guitar lines. Electro Morocco delivers soul-stomping performances all synced to self-produced video clips. Seasoned musicians Assaf Spector, Roy Gurel, Shlomie Lavie, Taylor Galassi and Yula Beeri mix everything from retro rock to Middle Eastern folk music, to warped electro in a fierce, high-energy performance.

DJ Balagan a.k.a. Sam Hopkins, has been producing his own sample-based dance tracks since 2003, incorporating Sephardic elements among various other ethnic styles.

“The off-beat rhythm, the interplay of tweaked, Oriental-sounding guitars, and the frenzied climaxes call to mind bellydancing music and hard rock.”
—Nextbook.org

Presented in partnership with the 16th Street J’s J-on-Demand program for 21-35 year olds

Aaron & Cecile Goldman Theater, Washington DCJCC
1529 16th Street NW
Washington, DC 20036
June 11, 8:00 pm
Followed by a Closing Night Party

Miri Ben-Ari, a Grammy award-winning violinist from Israel, has created her own unique sound by a revolutionary fusion of classical style with jazz, R&B and hip hop. She has been recognized as a musical pioneer. This classically trained musician has helped sell millions of records by collaborating with other Grammy award-winning artists such as Kanye West, Jay Z, Wyclef Jean, Alicia Keys, Wynton Marsalis, Britney Spears, Maroon 5, Donna Summer, Janet Jackson and John Legend among others.

She studied under the late classical master Isaac Stern and has earned the honor from New York's Apollo Theater as an “Apollo Legend.” She is known as “The Hip Hop Violinist,” the title of her latest album on Universal Records.

Miri Ben-Ari was honored as one of Jewish Women International's "Women To Watch" in 2007. She received the 2008 Israel Film Festival Visionary Award, and she is the first Israeli to receive the Martin Luther King Award from Israeli President, Shimon Peres.

Miri Ben-Ari is the CEO and co-founder of Gedenk ("Remember"), a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting awareness among young people about the Holocaust.

“Miri’s playing is wonderful, beautiful, exquisite, unpredictable, original and spontaneous.”
—Wynton Marsalis

“Miri Ben-Ari is to hip-hop now what Miles Davis was to Jazz back in the day! She’s re-inventing a whole new hip-hop sound!”
—Kanye West

The Hip Hop Sulha, SOBs, New York, NY, November 11, 2009

shemspeed Hip Hop SulhaNEW YORK, NY – On Wednesday, November 11, 2009, Jewish and Muslim artists from the Tug of War Tour and Shemspeed will come together at New York’s SOBs at the Hip Hop Sulha. Performers include Israeli and Iranian rap duo Most Hated, DeScribe, spoken word artist Tahani Salah, beat boxer J. Stone, Dash Speaks, TJ Di Hitmaker, NSR and a special DJ set by Electro Morocco.

Founded by American-Israeli producer, Diwon, The Hip Hop Sulha reinvents the concept of the traditional Arab sulha (reconciliation) by bringing leading Jewish and Muslim hip-hop musicians together to celebrate peace and religious tolerance via the performing arts. In the past, the series has hosted Hadag Nachash, Saz, Sagol 59, and DJ Spooky to name a few. This evening will feature Chassidic Hip Hop, Reggae, and R&B, artist, DeScribe, Jamaican Dancehall artist, TJ Di Hitmaker, and NYC-based Israeli expatriates, Electro Morocco.

The Tug of War Tour is a thought-provoking and multi-dimensional artistic endeavor that explores narratives of conflict and co-existence between Muslims and Jews. The brainchild of Israeli-American M.C. Sneakas and M.C. Serch (of Third Bass fame and VH1’s White Rapper Show), the tour features the controversial rap group ‘Most Hated’ (consisting of Sneakas and Muslim-Iranian rapper Mazzi), in addition to spoken word poets Vanessa Hidary and Tahani Salah (both of whom have been featured on HBO’s Def Poetry Jam).

Be a part of this unique opportunity to see Muslim and Jewish creativity together on one stage on Wednesday, November 11th at SOBs - 204 Varick Street. Doors open at 8pm; tickets are $10 in advance, $12 at the door. Stay for the after-party with Diwon spinning.

Darshan is astral rap, liturgical jazz, audio alchemy. Harmonizing Hebrew chant with hiphop, folk rock with electro-pop, love poetry with kabbalistic psychology, Darshan is a unique and organic weave of world wisdom traditions and modern musical styles.
Shir Yaakov is a Master of Melody who has given birth to hauntingly beautiful liturgical chants, used in havurot and synagogues around the world.

Eprhyme is a Radical Jewish Rennaissance Rapper.

Together, as Darshan, these two combine and connect to create something that is altogether new, and at the same time ancient. Deep and probing rhymes blend with evocative and uplifting melodies in "an uncompromising blend of urban forms and neo-Hasidic spirituality." — The Forward.

admission: $10 at the door

The concert will be preceded by a guest lecture on "Torah and Creativity" by Rabbi Menachem Leibtag, an internationally acclaimed bible scholar and pioneer of Jewish Education on the internet, is well known in the Jewish community for his essays on the weekly Bible portion. His vibrant thematic-analytical approach blends the methods of modern academic scholarship with traditional Jewish approaches to the Biblical text. He is best known for his ability to teach students how to study rather than simply read Biblical passages. As his essays focus on meta-themes in the Bible, his readership has expanded to students of the Bible from all religions and walks of life.

In Israel, Rabbi Leibtag teaches at Yeshivat Har Etzion, Yeshivat Shaalavim, Midreshet Lindenbaum, and at Yeshiva University's Gruss Center.

May 24th, 10pm
Tammany Hall
152 Orchard Street New York, NY 10002
Cost $10 Advance / $12 Door

Note: This event is part of the Sephardic Music Festival Summer Teaser.
Israel’s SHI 360 is anything but your typical hip hop artist. With the credo “Don’t be afraid to think,” SHI 360 combines deft rhymes and fresh, genre-shifting beats with bold social and political messages that spread harmony and peace worldwide. His newest album, “Shalom Haters” which premiered on Vibe Magazine’s All Hip Hop, arrives on the global hip hop scene at a time when the media has been astoundingly silent in response to recent rocket attacks on Israeli civilians.
We are about to get schooled while partying with one of Israel’s top rappers. This party will be the only NYC appearance from this Israeli artist who will be joined by Brody, an Israeli/American singer who bridges the worlds of soul, hip-hop, electronic and world music, fresh off his remixes of Stephen Marley, Eminem and Inna.
SHI 360 & Brody will be joined by Diwon who has been highlighted on MTV for his blend of hip hop and dancehall. Diwon will spin into the night with his signature mix of Israeli, Sephardic, Yemenite and ghetto US club remixes!

Shabaz et JuMu (prop)osent : L’AVENIR DE LA MUSIQUE KLEZMER

Anakronic Electro Orkestra (Electro Klezmer) + DJ RKK (Klezmer & Balkanik Mix)
Special guest from New York Brooklyn: Taron Benson

En concert
Jeudi 16 mai 2013 à 20h30
Au NEW MORNING
7/9 rue des Petites Ecuries
75010 PARIS

Deux ans après l'album SPEAK WITH GHOSTS, Anakronic Electro Orkestra revient avec l’album NOISE IN SEPHER (ffff de Télérama) et dépoussière les vieux grimoires de la musique Yiddish. Ces enchanteurs de l'ère numérique pratiquent une alchimie toujours aussi efficace, un mysticisme à grand coup de zéros et de uns, au son d'une musique traditionnelle qu'ils rendent subversivement moderne.

Au-delà d'un simple mélange, ce disque est une appropriation totale du répertoire Ashkénaze. Le hip-hop incisif mâtiné d'une chanson joyeuse (Lady Mydriasis) contraste avec cet autre morceaux de rap où quatre-vingt années de musiques et de tendances sont rassemblées dans trois minutes trente d'une efficacité jubilatoire (Noise in Sepher II feat. Taron Benson). Égaré mais heureux, on se retrouve trimballé d'une techno rageuse aux accents bulgares (Invidia) jusqu'à des montées hallucinées et planantes rappelant aussi bien le rock progressif que la musique classique (Schrödinger, Cabbalistic snare).

Enfin, le new-yorkais David Krakauer, légende vivante du Klezmer et premier artisan du renouveau mondial de cette musique fait une apparition virtuose dans un battle survolté avec une drum'n'bass déchainée et un dub sombre et profond (Uruk). Tout cela retrouve la danse, la transe, la joie et la douleur des anciennes mélodies pour former un véritable langage artistique original.

Dorénavant le Klezmer est une musique électro au même titre que la jungle, le break-beat ou le dubstep... le disque NOISE IN SEPHER en est l'ultime preuve (sortie avril 2013 sur Balagan Box / La Baleine).
