Resonate: Music for Our Moment
May 5 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$10
A concert of Middle Eastern and cantorial music infused with folk, rock, blues and jazz sounds.
RESONATE, founded by musician and activist Will Fudeman and Cantor Abbe Lyons brings together a multifaith group of Ithaca musicians. RESONATE’s songs inspire spiritual growth intertwined with social action. Rabbi Arthur Waskow of The Shalom Center, whose beautifully crafted, accessible and powerful translations of texts from Isaiah and Deuteronomy sparked the creation of their recent album Listen! says that the “extraordinary chant and music…enormously enrich the text.” Bill McKibben characterizes Listen! as “deep, witty, tuneful–music for our moment and for the long haul.”
Joining RESONATE founders Abbe (lead vocals and guitar) and Will (mandola, guitar, vocals) are Ithaca musicians Mahmud Burton (oud, hand drums, ney, guitar), David Frumkin (violin, guitar, vocals), Jon Hilton (bass) and John Simon (vocals, guitar). Their combination of Eastern and Western sounds and instruments delights and surprises.
