Musicians Joseph Lukas and Eyal Revlon explore the Yiddish folk music that became an important form of expression for Jewish immigrants coming to the United States from 1880 through the 1920s. The sound of Klezmer music is meant to mimic human vocalizations from talking and laughing to mournful crying. It’s evocative of Old World celebrations and a treat to hear.
Suzanne Morales is a Denver-based musician and composer whose music has been picked up for TV shows, indie films and shorts. While she loves ballads and blues, her great musical passion is Latin music. Morales brings a sensuality to her singing and guitar playing that transports audiences to moonlit beaches and friendly cantinas.
