Presented as part of the 29th Jewish Music Festival
“Convergence” combines diverse strains of traditional Jewish and African-American music directly at points of spiritual, melodic and textual convergence. Classical vocalist Anthony (Mordechai-Tzvi) Russell, in collaboration with acclaimed Bay Area klezmer trio Veretski Pass, creates a new repertoire of works exploring exile, spirituality, hope and redemption, enhanced by the animation work of San Francisco-based artist Meredith Leich.
