Ashkenoise, Ruth Levin, Tel Aviv, Israel, 16 Feb 2009

ou are all invited to hear Ashkenoise at Levontin 7 in Tel Aviv this monday, February 16 at 8PM. I realize it may be a bit of a commute for some of you, but this will be the premier performance of this new 7-piece band and we will be joined by the fantastic Yiddish singer from Jerusalem, Ruth Levin. The band includes some of Tel Aviv's top jazz and ethnic musicians, including Dani Benedict on drums, Ben Danzig on electric bass, Daniel Hoffman, violin, Vitaly Podolsky on accordion, Arad Yeni on trumpet, and Gershon Waiserfirer on marching trombone.

Ashkenoise is based in the pre-war American and Eastern European style of klezmer and includes original compositions fused with jazz and original settings of 20thC Yiddish poetry. At 10PM, the indefatigable Mendy Kahan and Yiddish Express will take the stage at the same venue. Please come: tickets are 50 shekels for each show or 70 for both. more info at www.levontin7.com/joomla/ or our still-under-construction website, www.ashkenoise.com
