Pharaoh’s Daughter

Groups from Israel and New York offer fresh takes on traditional Jewish music. The Kol Oud Tof trio from Israel interprets Judeo-Arabic and Ladino songs in a style that is both authentic and personal. New York’s Pharaoh’s Daughter is led by Basya Shechter, a creator of dynamic Hebrew songs that blend Sephardic, Arabic, East African, Turkish and Yiddish musical idioms.

Walter Zev FeldmanWalter Zev Feldman, known both for his scholarly contributions to Jewish Music history and for his performances and teaching of Jewish music and dance, is artistic director of "Music and Dance of Jewish Traditions: Songs of Love & Longing," a new series at NYC's 92nd St. Y this fall/winter.
