Breslov Bar Band and Siach Hasadeh @ Branded Saloon

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014
Siach Hasadeh @ 8:30 pm, Breslov Bar Band @ 9:30 pm
Branded Saloon
603 Vanderbilt Avenue (corner Bergen Street), Brooklyn, NY

From melancholy midnight meditations to funky/punky affirmations of the One, the Breslov Bar Band explores musical expressions of the Breslov Chassidim from the traditional to the contemporary.

Featuring:
Binyomin Ginzberg - keys/vox/vibrandoneon
Mike Cohen - reeds/vox
Allen Watsky - electric guitar/vox
Yoshie Fruchter - bass/vox
Aaron Alexander - drums/vox

Siach Hasadeh is a duo composed of bassist and composer Joel Kerr and clarinettist Yoni Kaston. Formed on a Saturday night in the Laurentian Mountains in Quebec, Siach HaSadeh explores and performs off-the-beaten-track Chassidic and spiritual Jewish melodies, primarily from the early sages of the Chassidic movement. The approach to the material is reverential and minimalist, but allows for improvisation and self expression from the voices of the two musicians (and guests), drawing on their diverse musical backgrounds and experience, without losing touch with the original intent.

Dance Workshop

This year’s workshop will explore the evolution of Yiddish dance in the USA from its Old World origins in traditional freylekhs and shers through bulgars and modern social dances to the post-war developments of Modern Orthodox music and dance, a surprising repertoire combining Yiddish, Israeli, Khassidic and pop music elements. We are delighted to have with us Andreas Schmitges (Germany, traditional Yiddish dances), Erik Bendix (USA, social dances), and to introduce for the first time in Weimar Jill Gellerman (USA, Modern Orthodox) to teach a repertoire that is guaranteed to change how you think of Orthodox Jewish culture! As always, all dance classes are accompanied by live music played by some of the leading Yiddish dance musicians in the world today, and in addition to morning and afternoon teaching sessions the evenings are dedicated to free dance sessions with music.
