Bubbeleh fearlessly (and shamelessly) invents intersections between traditional Jewish folk music and whatever we want. Mixing bulgars and horas with blistering odd meter grooves and improvisation, Bubbeleh takes its cues as much from artists such as Kneebody and the AACM as Naftule Brandwein and Dave Tarras.

Izela, meaning "good luck" in ancient Macedonian, is an ensemble that has been forged from circumstance, fortune and magnetism. Formed in Los Angeles, Izela is a genre defying mix of folk, jazz, and progressive rock music. Izela’s virtuosic repertoire combines thousands of years of traditional music and unique instrumentation with contemporary jazz and Zappa-esque experimental rock.
