The 8th Annual Sephardic Music Festival

The 8th Annual Sephardic Music Festival

This Hanukkah fest wants to school us in Jewish music—and not just your grandpa’s klez.

COPAL: Copal sets an evocative tone; lavish voices of violin and cello flicker against a twilight scape of electronic swells and textures, impelled by a driving rhythmic sense, and original melodies steeped in global musical traditions.

PHARAOH’S DAUGHTER: Blending a psychedelic sensibility and a pan-Mediterranean sensuality, Basya Schechter leads her band, Pharaoh’s Daughter, through swirling Hasidic chants, Mizrachi and Sephardi folk-rock, and spiritual stylings.

The Sway Machinery

Copal

Copal sets an evocative tone; lavish voices of violin and cello flicker against a twilight scape of electronic swells and textures, impelled by a driving rhythmic sense, and original melodies steeped in global musical traditions. NYC-based, Copal is lead by violinist/composer Hannah Thiem surrounded by an impressive cast of talented collaborators: Isabel Castellvi (cello), Rob Chamberlain (drums), Lorenzo Wolff (bass), Tripp Dudley (percussion). The band's sound is a steampunk melding of styles set on a world stage. Nordic melodies ride Middle-Eastern rhythms into the halls of a remembered past, Hungarian riffs blush hotly against Spanish-cadence, opulent harmonies from far-gone depths. "Beguiling" (First Coast News) and "artistically beautiful yet darkly tantalizing" (Maximum Ink), like lucid dreams, the sounds of Copal will take you away.
