Fields fused Latin and Yiddish music in interpreting classic Yiddish songs like "Bay Mir Bist du Sheyn", London and Singh add a host of influences from Downtown Jazz to Bollywood to Klezmer. Frank and Deep have collaborated on a number of projects, from Sharabi, the world's first Bhangra-Funk-Klezmer party band, to the radical multimedia re-telling of Salomé: Woman of Valor. Deep studied with Ustad AllaRakha and taught George Harrison and has played with witheveryone from Falu to Sting. He was featured in the Broadway shows Bombay Dreams and Monsoon Wedding; nominated for a Grammy for his work on Falu'sBazaar; and is New York's pre-eminent dhol and tablaplayer. Sir Frank London, the "mystic high priest of downtown avant klezmer-jazz", recently premiered his Cuban-Yiddish opera, Hatuey Memory of Fire. Recent events include the sold out Carnegie Hall concert From The Shtetl to the Stage; Ghetto Songs at Hamburg's prestigious Elbephilharmonie, and Kurt Weill in NY at the Weill Festival in Dessau, Germany. On May 28, 2019 he will unveil the spectacle In Dreams Begin Responsibilities at the New York Public Library. Frank composes operas and symphonies, has played with Pink Floyd, Angelique Kidjo, Lester Bowie, ItzhakPerlman, Mel Tormé, Karen O, John Zorn; co-created the Downtown festival Yiddish New York, and was on Sex and The City. PAUL SHAPIRO Paul Shapiro who's been called "the downtown version of Jewish novelty maestro Mickey Katz" leads his band Ribs & Brisket Revue through a lively set that swings hard and is funny to boot. From The Ballad of Irving and Yiddishe Mamboto Dunkin' Bagel "Shapiro stirs klezmer, swing and R&B, seasoning it all with a potent Yiddish tinge," reported Time Out. Shapiro has performed with notables such as Lou Reed, Queen Latifah, Brooklyn Funk Essentials, The Microscopic Septet, Arturo O'Farrill, Frankie Knuckles, Rufus Wainwright, Michael Jackson and Ofra Haza, and led his own punk-funk outfit Foreign Legion throughout the 1980's. But it was his 2003 release on John Zorn's Tzadik label entitled Midnight Minyan that started him on a path that recently found him on the cover of Jews and Jazz by Charles Hersch and performing at festivals in Poland, Israel, Slovakia and Canada. Shapiro has also composed for film, most notably an original score to accompany the 1925 silent film His People and the score to Cheryl Dunye's award winning identity film Watermelon Woman. Of Ribs & Brisket Revue UK's Straight No Chaser writes "hard blowing, finger-snapping, klezmer-inflected jazz and big city blues that suddenly slips into Yiddish." Jazziz notes, "lively, witty, well-played and just plain excellent. A potent reminder jazz can still be a whole mess of freewheeling fun without sacrificing a lick of intelligence or creativity." The New Yorker posits: "A heaping platter of rhythm and blues and jazz served with a schmear of classic Yiddish culture is the special of the day for this joyful outfit. Led by the exuberant saxophonist Shapiro and featuring the vocalist Cilla Owens, the Revue is always willing to time warp to an era when sympathetic musical genres regularly shared the same table." Jazz Times describes Cilla, "as smooth as Nancy Wilson, as authoritative as Sarah Vaughn and as informed as Carmen McRae". http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=359214 City Winery City Winery
