Shir HaShirim CD Release Party
Joe's Pub at The Public Theater
11pm / $10 advance / $15 at door
425 Lafayette
NY, NY 10003

Benyamin Brody, Diwon, and Dugans take on Shir Ha Shirim (The Song of Songs)/Kodesh Kodashim (The Holy of Holies), The music mixes the emotive Moroccan singing of Benyamin in a "call out" to the most high, through the writings and poetry of King Solomon, with Diwon's and Dugans' signature walls of sound that bring hip hop, rock, and mizrachi influences to this middle eastern meditative record.

The evening will feature a live performance of the music by Israeli, Moroccan and Yemenite musicians followed by a closing set with a few very special guests.
