A first aural encounter with Elliot Bergman’s trans-cultural Nomo ensemble from Ann Arbor, MI, will undoubtedly and correctly stir the soul and move the feet. Bergman, the leader and composer, has assembled a large band around the sound of reeds and brass, the occasional woodwind, a myriad of percussion instruments to create a large Afrobeat sound.

New York-based klezmer/rock band Golem transforms the music of its Jewish grandparents, making it modern, edgy, sexy and brash. Golem has infused the world music scene with a breath of fresh air from Eastern Europe. Fronted by Annette Ezekiel, the bandleader, accordionist and singer and madcap vocalist Aaron Diskin, Golem’s explosive onstage attitude gets klezmer to rock. For more more information visit
