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

opera, A Night in the Old Marketplace, was the lead in Bombay Dreams
on Broadway and co-starred in Mike Myers' Love Guru.
