Hasidic New Wave’s eclectic blend of traditional Hasidic wedding music — horas, freylachs, marches and nigunim — combined with their own free form compositions and improvisation, helped catapult klezmer music to the forefront of New York’s alternative music scene in early 90s. Drawing from Klezmer, Persian, and Middle Eastern musical traditions they blend in rock, jazz, disco, improv and cantorial scores to create a raucous musical meeting of the secular and the sacred. A diverse blend of musical talent, Hasidic New Wave members include Frank London from the Klezmatics (trumpet), co-founder Greg Wall (sax), David Fiuczynski and Fima Ephron (bass) from the Screaming Headless Torsos (guitar), and Seattle native Aaron Alexander (drums). Their CD “Jews and the Abstract Truth” examines the polyglot of musical and cultural influences borrowed from wherever Jews have lived.
