Thursday 26th March, 7:30pm
Los Desterrados, Oi Va Voi and the Yiddish Twist Orchestrawill rock out the JCC’s
Other Seder. For the third consecutive year, we present our unique take on the Seder,
as each band performs a
song inspired by the after-dinner songs as the launching point for
Cualos son los uno
Six-piece Los Desterrados,
who released their third album, Miradores at the end of 2008, bring
their mix of ladino, flamenco, Moorish and Gypsy flavours to the Seder.
Destake the Medieval music of the Sephardic Jews, with its strong
Latin influences, and drag it effortlessly into the 21st Century with
lashings of Spanish folk and Balkan Soul to deliver a series of
rousing, melancholic songs that pulse with rhythm and feeling” (London Metro)
London’s superfly klezmer / punk / gypsy outfit Oi Va Voi give us a sneak preview
of their forthcoming third album, Traveling the Face of the Globe.
“Kudos, culture, vision.Oi Va Voi. Remember the name”
The JCC’s own creation, the fabulous Yiddish Twist Orchestra, will set the dance
floor swinging with their hard-dancing, pulp fiction style 50s and 60s Yiddish
by Judy Batalion and accompanied by the tunes of DJ Max Reinhardt and
visuals by imagician Miki Shaw, The Other Seder Songs returns to
the beautiful Wilton’s Music Hall for a night of music and dance.
