Amanda Monaco, New York, NY, 17 September 2011

Guitarist Amanda Monaco will celebrate the release of The Pirkei Avot Project, Volume 1 at 92YTribeca on September 17, 2011 at 9 pm. Tickets are $15 and are available at www.92y.org.
Containing over 600 years of rabbinical teachings, the Pirkei Avot was compiled in the third century C.E. and has been traditionally studied ever since. Monaco has composed and recorded a suite of music inspired by these teachings, using excerpts as the lyrics for each piece and singing them in their original languages, Hebrew and Aramaic. Joining her on the recording and at the CD release concert are Ayelet Rose Gottlieb on vocals, Daphna Mor on recorders and ney, Sean Conly on bass, and Satoshi Takeishi on percussion.
