Brooklyn Takht


Brooklyn Takht is a new ensemble led by vocalist Shelley Thomas and comprised of Arab and American musicians from the New York Arabic Orchestra. Presenting Classical Arabic Music of Egypt and Lebanon, they tell tales of unrequited love and inextinguishable passion through complex forms and modes. Lusciously ornamented melodies and evocative poetry stir the spirit of this rare musical form. Shelley Thomas- vocals; Samer Ali- violin; Brian Prunka- oud; Bridget Robbins- ney; Sprocket Royer- bass; Zafer Tawil- riq.


The Brooklyn, NY based trio Dolunay (Turkish for “full moon”) draws upon the songs from the Turkish people living across Rumeli, the former region of the Ottoman Balkans. Dolunay’s intimate sound, sparse in loudness and textured with the dissonance of eastern blues, gives way to a sound at once earthy and celestial, the size of which defies that of the small makeup of the band. Inspired to engage with the unique repertoire of lesser-known songs and empowered with a knack to enrich the uncovered sounds with a personal note, Dolunay creates the opportunity to breathe new life into melodies of a region culturally diverse and historically rich.

Jenny Luna - vocals and percussion
Adam Good - ud, tambura
Eylem Basaldi - violin
