ASEFA: A Musical Gathering

ASEFA (Hebrew for gathering) is led by ethnomusicologist and multi-instrumentalist Samuel Torjman Thomas. The ensemble traverses several Mediterranean musical traditions, drawing upon a rich intercultural mix of Hebraic and Islamic traditions from North Africa and the Middle East while delving into Andalusian and Maqam-based musical dialects. Songs are performed in Hebrew, Arabic, Spanish, and Ladino. Dr. Torjman Thomas performs on oud, vocals, nay, and bendir, accompanied by violinist Jeremy Brown and hand percussionist Mick LaBriola.
