Abstract (Document Summary)

One such event is the second annual Sephardic Music Festival, a New York City event being planned and produced by Modular Moods, a record label at the forefront of Jewish progressive jazz and electronic music. The organization has high hopes for the crossover potential of festival performer Y-Love, an African-American Jew who raps in Hebrew, Arabic, Aramaic and Yiddish. Y-Love will take the stage along with ethnic groove band Pharaoh's Daughter for the festival's kickoff event, while performers at the festival's other shows include Jerusalem hip hop act Hadag Nachash, piyut jammers Asefa, Ladino diva Sarah Aroeste, social action balladeer Aliza Hava and Connecticut's Afro Semitic Experience.

Another JDub bash, this one co-sponsored by Heeb magazine, will take place in New York, Washington, D.C., Boston and Chicago this week, with performances by Golem, klezmer and hip-hop artist SoCalled, members of world beat ensemble Balkan Beat Box and indie Jewish supergroup the Leevees, whose members are embarking on a mini-tour of their own as well. The Leevees have surely picked up where actor Adam Sandler left off in presenting Hanukka-themed songs with endearing comic lyrics. The Leevees aren't the only act vying to carry on Sandler's legacy, but armed with indie credibility, the band may be the one that rocks the hardest.
