On the last episode of Shtetl for 2013 we’re talking music, comedy and what happens when Muslims and Jews collaborate for our listening and laughing pleasure. The Epichorus is a Brooklyn-based, North-African sounding band and we’ll speak with composer and oud player Rabbi Zach Fredman and Sudanese-born lead singer Alsarah.
Also, it’s that time of year again when X-mas lights and Santa are everywhere. Muslim comedian Abdul Butt and Jewish comedian Jeff Schouela are on to talk about Kosher Jokes for the Halaladays.
Happy Yuletide Ramadanuka!! It’s been a pleasure being your source for thoughtful, quirky and alternative Jewish culture this whacky 2013.
NOTE: Epichorus (the whole 8 member ensemble!) will be playing this January 11th at 8PM at Dorshei Emet in Montreal. Call (514) 486-9400 for more info and tickets.
Music on this episode is by The Epichorus, Jake Freekin’ Smith and The Toure-Raichel Collective
