To all of our friends and fans we wish you a Happy 2017,
Next weekend we honor the legacy and memory of Dr. Martin Luther King. We also celebrate the 19th anniversary of our first performance. And we are grateful to have three events coming up in the coming week where we will be doing just that. We’re playing in Washington, DC, Baltimore, and Commack, Long Island.
We begin the weekend on Friday, January 13 with a Sabbath service and Sermon in Song at Temple Sinai in Washington, DC. The service begins at 7:00 p.m. After the service, we will be playing a full-length set, our sermon in song, to honor Dr. King. The address for Temple Sinai is Sinai, 3100 Military Road NW, Washington, DC 20015.
The next morning, on Saturday, January 14, we are traveling to Baltimore where we will be playing a Sabbath morning service at Baltimore Hebrew Congregation. The service starts at 10 am and the address for the synagogue is 7401 Park Heights Avenue, Baltimore, Maryland 21208. We’ll also be playing a short set to honor Dr. King at this service.

Coming up in February:

As we begin our 19thyear we see and hear so much that tells us that our message of Unity in the Community is still resonant and relevant. We love hearing from our friends on Facebook(if you're on Facebook please like us!) and at our web site. We hope to bring our music to more places where it is needed and desired. And we hope that brings us near enough to see you!!! If you have any friends or family near where we are playing please forward this message to them and encourage them to check us out--as we find that word of mouth is what works best when you are a grassroots ensemble.
Àse and Shalom,
Warren, David, Abu, Alvin, Saskia, Stacy, and Will
The Afro-Semitic Experience
We merge our musical roots, Jewish and Afro-diasporic melodies and grooves, combining the core concepts of àse and shalom- power, action, unity, and peace.
