A new early/world music project by internationally recognized recorder soloists Nina Stern and Daphna Mor. Mor and Stern have appeared playing as a duo with groups as varied as The New York Philharmonic and world music group Pharaoh's Daughter and on stages as varied as Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center and Joe’s Pub. In this band they collaborate with leading jazz and world musicians including composer/accordionist Uri Sharlin, and Yo Yo Ma's "Silk Road Ensemble" percussionist Shane Shanahan. Their new self-titled album, produced by renowned word music producer Jamshied Sharifi, includes traditional music from the Balkans, Armenia, and Medieval Italy, arranged and interpreted by the musicians. The combination of these foremost musicians from classical, jazz and world music backgrounds creates the unique blend that is East of the River.

The workshop will focus on world music, for all instrumentalists and percussionists. Bring your own instrument and join in!
