Next Stage Arts and the Brattleboro Area Jewish Community Present an Evening of Global Hebrew and Jewish Music with Yamma Ensemble, on Friday, September 16th at 7:30 p.m. at Next Stage Arts, 15 Kimball Hill Road, in Putney, VT

Next Stage Arts and the Brattleboro Area Jewish Community present an evening of global Hebrew and Jewish music with Yamma Ensemble.

“Masters of their craft, Yamma Ensemble reflects the perfect balance between respect for tradition and making the music innovative,” says Keith Marks, Executive Director of Next Stage Arts. “Israel is a melting pot of traditions from the Jewish diaspora living all over the world for over 2,000 years. Yamma blends language, tradition, religion, culture, and music. We couldn’t be more proud to present them in the theater.”

Ensemble Yamma, Israel’s leading delicate world music ensemble presents original contemporary Hebrew music.

The group members stay true to the character of the Middle East, the region where they were born and raised. The soulful, exotic music is accompanied by ancient musical instruments (kopuz, duduk, hand drums) which are typical of the Middle East.

In addition to this unique art, Yamma also performs the traditional music and material of the various Jewish diasporas. Songs of the Jewish communities from Yemen, Babylon, and Sepharad, as well as Hasidic music, with the fascinating forms and rhythms that have been preserved by generations of Jewish traditions.
