The Afro-Semitic Experience is a collective of Jewish and African American musicians. Each member of the group contributes to create a musical world of intricate diversity. Our music is a merging of the many elements of our cultures. Much of what we play has a strong spiritual center to it--our repertoire contains a heavy dose of music from the Jewish synagogue and the African American church. Recent projects include explorations of historically significant spiritual jazz compositions and the merging of jazz and world music elements with Jewish Cantorial music. We bring joy and enthusiasm to our performances, and audiences are invariably on their feet before we have finished.
