Darshan Album Release w/ Elana Brody



Darshan is a kaleidoscopic fusion of Hip Hop, Rock, World, Psychedelic and Jewish music like you’ve never heard before. Featuring the evocative melodies of Basya Schechter (Pharaoh's daughter) in conversation with the esoteric rap/poetry of Brooklyn MC EPrhyme (Eden Pearlstein), with deep world grooves provided by Shanir Blumenkranz (Yemen Blues, Banquet of the Spirits),  Brian Marsella (Banquet of the Spirits, Zion80), and drummer Manny Laine (Wyclef).




Raza, Darshan’s newest release, is a radical reimagining of the traditional prayers and mystical poetry recited on Friday night to welcome the Sabbath Bride. Basya’s sensuous melodies breathe new life into lyrical selections from the Song ​​of Songs, Psalms, and other classic Friday night poems, while ePRHYME’S probing rhymes give an urgent voice to what is hidden between the lines of these ancient texts. Seamlessly interweaving a dizzying array of influences and inspirations from East to West, Raza transforms this most beloved of Jewish liturgical rites into a genre-defying work of sacred pop art. 

 

Darshan will be joined this evening by a handful of very special musical guests:
Ashely "Saywut" Moyer 
Jon Madof
Jessica Lurie
