Join us for a performance that is at once uproarious and deeply spiritual, fusing Afrofunk groove and Yemenite Jewish culture. Magnetic frontman Ravid Kahalani leads this nine-piece ensemble in their second appearance at the Museum. Together, they’ll not only have you moving, but they’ll also take you on a spiritual exploration. Hallel (הלל), meaning praise in Hebrew, is a Jewish prayer in which Psalms 113 to 118 are recited as an act of thanks. Yemen Blues is one of Israel’s most exciting bands, having garnered world-wide acclaim for their unique and captivating sound.
This performance is a co-production with the Ashkenaz Festival and is part of our 2019/20 Performing Arts season, Listening to Each Other, which pays tribute to the role of the performative arts in connecting communities, preserving culture, and spurring social change.
