"The Other Seder Songs", London, UK, 26 Mar 2009

The Other Seder Songs
Thursday 26th March, 7:30pm

Los Desterrados, Oi Va Voi and the Yiddish Twist Orchestra will rock out the JCC's Other Seder. For the third consecutive year, we present our unique take on the Seder, as each band performs a song inspired by the after-dinner songs as the launching point for their set.

Cualos son los uno
Six-piece Los Desterrados, who released their third album, Miradores at the end of 2008, bring their mix of ladino, flamenco, Moorish and Gypsy flavours to the Seder.

"Los Des take the Medieval music of the Sephardic Jews, with its strong Latin influences, and drag it effortlessly into the 21st Century with lashings of Spanish folk and Balkan Soul to deliver a series of rousing, melancholic songs that pulse with rhythm and feeling" (London Metro)

Adir Hu
London's superfly klezmer / punk / gypsy outfit Oi Va Voi give us a sneak preview of their forthcoming third album, Traveling the Face of the Globe.

"Kudos, culture, vision.Oi Va Voi. Remember the name"YTO Merlin
(Evening Standard)

Chad Gadya
The JCC's own creation, the fabulous Yiddish Twist Orchestra, will set the dance floor swinging with their hard-dancing, pulp fiction style 50s and 60s Yiddish surf twist!

Hosted by Judy Batalion and accompanied by the tunes of DJ Max Reinhardt and visuals by imagician Miki Shaw, The Other Seder Songs returns to the beautiful Wilton's Music Hall for a night of music and dance.
