Additional Information

DeLeon uses stomps, clangs and plenty of banjo to transform ancient Sephardic folk songs into a sound that is both brand new and centuries old. By re-imagining these ancient melodies, DeLeon has given the world at large a unique chance to experience the deeply mysterious and entrancing cadences of the ancient Sephardic tradition, and to do it while dancing. They've released two albums on JDub Records (Z"L) and have toured with other like-minded bands such as Gogol Bordello, Os Mutantes, Ozomatli and Balkan Beat Box.

Yiddish Princess - Double guitar onslaught. Drums beating you into submission. Precious analog synths beckoning. And a voice that can shatter ice and coo you into mellifluous bliss. Oyf Yiddish. Looking to reconcile your love of power pop and hard rock with your love of Yiddish music? Your search is over. Behold, Yiddish Princess.

ALSO: Jewish Food Throwdown - Acclaimed food writer and cookbook author Leah Koenig will be selling homemade Babka and Baklava, traditional treats from asheknaz and sephardic cultures.  Get there early before supplies run out!
