Divahn's Middle Eastern/Sephardic grooves were home-grown in Austin, Texas! This bold all-lady ensemble infuses traditional Jewish songs with sophisticated harmonies and funky arrangements. The group has engendered a national following with their riveting live shows including instruments such as tabla, cello, violin, didgeridoo, doumbek, and banjo and glowing vocals spanning Hebrew, Judeo-Spanish, Persian, Arabic, and Aramaic. Through their music, the group underscores common ground shared between diverse Middle Eastern cultures and religions. Join Divahn for a special performance at Satalla celebrating the 350th anniversary of Sephardic immigration to the U.S.
