The first Thursday of every month Shir Yaakov and Eden “Eprhyme” Pearlstein perform with a rotating cast of creative characters. Each month offers something new, showcasing this unique and versatile Musical Midrash project. From straight-up hip-hop, to sit-down meditative acoustic experiences, to far-out improv-oriented excursions, and everything in between. Each month features very special guests....


Astral rap. Liturgical jazz. Audio alchemy. Harmonizing Hebrew chant with hiphop, folk rock with electro-pop, love poetry with kabbalistic psychology, Darshan is a unique and organic weave of world wisdom traditions and modern musical styles.

Shir Yaakov is a master of melody who has given birth to hauntingly beautiful liturgical chants that echo around the world. He is the Creative and Musical Director of Romemu, NYC’s Renewal Community. Eprhyme is a Radical Jewish Rennaissance Rapper.

Together, as Darshan, these two combine and connect to create something that is altogether new, and at the same time ancient. Darshan is “an uncompromising blend of urban forms and neo-Hasidic spirituality.”
