The Klezmatics’ Frank London and Sway Machinery’s Jeremiah Lockwood have long been trespassing on sacred ground. For this special collaboration, Lockwood & London resurrect the sounds and spirit of the golden age of khazones – Ashkenazic religious singing – and explore the music of Zebulon Kwartin. Both artists are adept at exploring Jewish music and mysticism, bridging tradition and modernity. This new collaboration allows them to explore their mutual obsession with Cantorial music, and is part of the current zeitgeist resurgence of interest in classic Cantorial music.
Date: Monday, September 27, 2010 Time: 7pm Venue: Terminal 5 (610 W 56th St., Between 11th and 12th Avenues, New York, NY 10019) Ticket: $35 – $40 Genre: Hip Hop/Rap
