Indian and Jewish music collide! Trumpeter Frank London of the Klezmatics joins master percussionist Deep Singh to present a new look at old traditions. The connection between Jewish and Indian culture is a long one, with roots stretching back to biblical times. The concert will explore both the ecstatic and the meditative aspects of Jewish and Indian music, and will feature songs by Malkit Singh and Moyshe Oysher. Songs will be sung in Yiddish, Punjabi, Hebrew, Hindi, and English. 

Special Guests: 

Master Indian percussionist Deep Singh has played with everyone from the legendary Punjab singer Malkit Singh to British superstar Sting.  

Manu Narayan sang the part of the Badkhn in Frank London's Jewish rock opera, A Night in the Old Marketplace, was the lead in Bombay Dreams on Broadway and co-starred in Mike Myers' Love Guru.

Jeremiah Lockwood, leader and singer of the Sway Machinery, is a guitarist with Balkan Beat Box and Songs of Zebulon.  

Sarah Gordon is the lead singer of the prog-ethnic band, Yiddish Princess.
