We need your help to raise $100,000 in four nights to help the victims of Haiti's catastrophic earthquake. No country in the Western Hemisphere has been battered more than Haiti in the last 500 years—the nearly complete annihilation of its native population over two decades, a brutal slave regime, ongoing foreign military interventions over hundreds of years, brutal dictatorships supported by western powers, blockades of aid and more recently, devastating natural disasters from hurricanes to this latest earthquake.

Shemspeed presents the opening night of its annual Sephardic Music Festival with a lineup showcasing some of the top female talents in modern Jewish music.

With Noa Lembersky as the firey redhead at front stage center, she provided a captivating jazz vocal treatment of Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal” (the band’s current single off their Besides EP) which included a bright trumpet solo by the tall, dreadlocked Urijah.  Adding to the electic image of the group was the band’s frontman Jonathan Dagan who—dressed in khakis and a sweater vest—provided an energy all his own with vocals, electric guitar and turntables mixed in the various songs...

The SoHo Journal had the pleasure to attend The Shells album release party, and we were blown away.  The fierce female trio who define themselves as "cosmo country" won an MTV nomination for the Best Breakout Artists in New York City— a nod that is well deserved.  

 


3rd Ward is one of our favorite companies for its bottom line commitment to support the arts. This miracle of an organization seems to understand how difficult it is to be a young artist in a big city and offers encouragement and, more so, opportunity.

Yeasayer is one of our favorite New York bands in recent years.  Coming onto the scene in 2007 with popular tracks such as "Sunrise" and "2080", their self styled “Middle Eastern-psych-snap-gospel" is experimental to say the least.  Their musical mixture of unrelated sounds somehow comes together into a harmonious tye-dye of beautiful tunes.  Producing true blue experimental world music is hard (it’s even hard to write) but the Brooklyn-based band has done it well.
