From melancholy midnight meditations to funky/punky affirmations of the One, the Breslov Bar Band explores musical expressions of the Breslov Chassidim from the traditional to the contemporary. The d'Safi Takht Ensemble features Samuel R. Thomas (nay, bendir) and Yoshie Fruchter (oud), members of ASEFA, performing instrumental compositions influenced by North African, Sephardic, and Arab music traditions. Expect a twist of jazz improvisations to transport these pieces into the Present.
