Jewish Culture

We kicked off our Cultural Fusion Concert Series with Jacques Schwarz-Bart and Jewazz on July 28, 2016 to a sold-out crowd at The Soiled Dove Underground. For saxophonist Jacques Schwarz-Bart, jazz has been a lens through which he makes sense of the world around him. A native of Guadeloupe, Schwarz-Bart has led projects inspired by Gwoka music from his homeland, Voodoo traditions from Haiti, and spiritual music from Cuba. In Jewazz, Schwarz-Bart’s explores yet another folkloric tradition of his ancestry—Jewish liturgical music.
