Add to Calendar 21-02-2013 21-02-2013 15 POLESYE PROJECT & SHOFAR TRIO Singer, accordionist, musicologist and Warsaw-native Olga Mieleszczuk's (Polesye Project) special focus is music of the Ashkenazi Jewish tradition of Eastern Europe, especially the border areas of Poland (Galitzia, Polesye). A classically-trained musician, who divides her time between Warsaw and Tel Aviv, she has studied and performed wide-ranging genres from Hassidic music, to Yiddish songs, to folk music from the Jewish, Slavic and Balkan traditions. Her recording, Jewish Folksongs From the Shtetl, drawn from works of Mariam Nirenberg, a Jewish singer from Polesye who emigrated to Canada in 1932, was released earlier this year. Shofar Trio -- guitarist Raphael Roginski, saxophonist and bass clarinet player Mikolaj Trzaska and drummer Macio Moretti (who performed at Target - Free Thursdays for the 2012 Unsound Festival as half of LXMP) -- formed in 2006, joins traditional Jewish music with contemporary avant-jazz and rock. The Poland-based band released its debut album album in 2007 -- works based on the first compendium of Hassidic melodies from the Ukraine, Poland and Moldova compiled by early 20th-century Sovient musicologist Moshe Beregovsky. Over the past five years, the group has performed throughout Europe. The concert will feature the trio's innovative interpretations of nigunim, or religious songs (meant to induce a state of religious ecstasy), more dancelike freylakhs, and Jewish liturgical music. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=125750 Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts true DD/MM/YYYY
