The Klezmatics have once again turned their music inside out, exposing the complexity of Jewish identity, Black identity, human identity. "Brother Moses Smote the Water"—their new release on Piranha (distributed in the U.S. by Harmonia Mundi)—teams the band with African-American Jewish spiritual singer Joshua Nelson and jazz organist/vocalist Kathryn Farmer. This first live Klezmatics recording alternates between age-old Passover songs, Nelson's own brand of "kosher gospel" and beloved Klezmatics anthems.
