Piano, Flute, Percussion/Drums?! Yes. This is the world premiere for a

the most unique flute players around. And, of course, Roland has been the
drummer of choice in her trio for many years. And when the three
get together…you have to hear it.

Antibalas horn section) and Frantic Turtle.
The Sway Machinery: Hidden Melodies of the Jews of New York City Longtime
collaborators Jeremiah Lockwood (Balkan Beat Box, Carolina Slim) and Tomer
Tzur (Beat the Donkey, Pharaoh’s Daughter) team up with friends from
Antibalas to present an audacious descent into the depths of Jewish soul
music. Calling upon the sounds of Malian guitars, Saharan beats, Afro-pop
horns and the B-L-U-E-S, The Sway Machinery goes knocking at the gates of
prayer with muscles swollen and eyes clenched.
“Brechtian-punk swagger.” The Village Voice
Frantic Turtle: a spoken-word / punk project a-la Velvet Underground. The
midrashic poetics, instantenous interpretations from verbal semantics to
music and back, and the raspy russinalising funk.
