Nigunim Vol. IV: Brooklyn Spirituals - Joey Weisenberg CD

Article number: WE-J04
Availability: In stock

These recordings capture Joey Weisenberg and the Hadar Ensemble performing “Jewish Spirituals” live at Brooklyn’s oldest synagogue. You can hear older styles of Jewish music – nigunim (wordless melodies), z’mirot (Sabbath-table melodies), choral music, and traditional nusach (prayer chant) – organically melding with the spontaneous improvisation, liberated harmonies and indie soul music of the Brooklyn soundscape. The words, mostly taken from traditional liturgy, all reflect a yearning to discover the eternal spirit that runs through the world.
