Cal Performances presents
Pomegranates & Figs:
A Feast of Jewish Music
featuring Teslim, Kitka Women's Ensemble and The Gonifs klezmer band
Celebrating the rich diversity of Jewish music, Pomegranates & Figs is holiday fare of a different stripe from the people who originally created Klezmer Mania!. Showcasing the infectious exuberance of klezmer, Yiddish folk song, and the soulful traditions of Sephardic music, this triple bill features the driving, danceable rhythms of the klezmer band the Gonifs; the glorious harmonies of Kitka Women's Vocal Ensemble; and the Bay Area string duo Teslim, featuring violinist Kaila Flexer and multi-instrumentalist Gari Hegedus, with special guests violinists Julian Smedley, Shira Kammen, and Leah Wollenberg, harpist Liza Wallace, and percussionist Faisal Zedan.
