Hasidic, Hip Hop, Jazz, Klezmer
The Alter Jazz Ensemble is a pioneering music project that fuses traditional Jewish prayer and song with jazz music, melding together disparate worlds to create a unique musical offering. The project is an initiative of American-born and Australian-based hipster chassid Rabbi Noam Sendor and is produced by renowned Australian composer Adam Starr. The band will bring to the stage some unreleased material that was road-tested on US tours in 2015 and 2016. Noam and Adam are still in production stages for their second recording, a document of this repertoire, featuring many of the amazing musicians you will see on stage at Shir Madness.
