Basya Schechter: Songs of Wonder

FREE

Basya Schechter of Pharaoh's Daughter presents her settings of the transcendent Yiddish poetry of the revered Jewish philosopher and civil rights activist Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel. Blending a psychedelic sensibility and a pan-Mediterranean sensuality, Basya Schechter leads her band through swirling Hasidic chants, Mizrachi and Sephardi folk-rock, and spiritual stylings filtered through percussion, flute, strings, and electronica. Her sound has been cultivated by her Hasidic music background and a series of trips to the Middle East, Africa, Israel, Egypt, Central Africa, Turkey, Kurdistan, and Greece.
