Hidden Melodies Revealed 15
In 2007, legendary blues and rock band The Sway Machinery presented Hidden Melodies Revealed, a hybrid concert, theatrical experience, and ritual performance that brought khazones - the Eastern European Jewish tradition of liturgical music - into the mainstream. Now, fifteen years later, The Sway Machinery returns to Hidden Melodies Revealed for an all-new concert featuring old friends and newcomers to cantorial revival and the musical traditions of Yiddish experimental expressive culture. Hidden Melodies Revealed 15 presents the futurist sound of The Sway Machinery alongside a second stage of “radical traditionalism,” featuring new arrangements of Jewish ritual music for strings led by Jake Shulman-Ment and featuring vocal soloists Shahanna McKinney-Baldon and Yoel Kohn.
In addition to musical guests, the event will also feature actor Debra Winger providing live narration for two animated films: The Akeidah by Shawn Atkins, and Scenes From the Life of Ben Zion Kapov Kagan by Andrea Dezsö alongside a live score by The Sway Machinery.
The Sway Machinery’s current line-up of Jeremiah Lockwood (guitar and vocals), Yula Be’eri (bass and vocals), John Bollinger (drums), Stuart Bogie (tenor saxophone) and Jordan McLean (trumpet) will be enhanced by special guest Yusuke Yamamoto (organ). Hidden Melodies Revealed 15 is produced in collaboration with Because Jewish and The Neighborhood: An Urban Center for Jewish Life.
