Divahn: Jewish Songs of the Middle East

An edgy all-female powerhouse ensemble infuses traditional and original Middle Eastern Jewish songs with sophisticated harmonies, entrancing improvisations, and funky arrangements. Lead singer Galeet Dardashti follows a family tradition of distinguished musicianship dating back to 19th-century Persia. But it was down in Austin, Texas, where Divahn’s bold all-woman Mizrahi/Sephardi ensemble began dazzling audiences with its Middle Eastern grooves. Infusing traditional and original Jewish songs with sophisticated harmonies, entrancing improvisations, and funky arrangements, today Divahn has engendered an international following performing in venues ranging from top concert halls in Poland to the most prestigious clubs in NYC.

    Virtuous performances from each musician. Ms Dardashti’s spiritual acumen is thoroughly steeped in the voice of a people with ancient and world wide roots. The power in the group’s music with Dardashti’s cantorial classical vocals and lyrics guiding performers and audience alike was genuinely transcendent.
