Brother Moses Smote The Water Program


The Klezmatics
Brother Moses Smote The Water Program
Featuring Joshua Nelson


The Klezmatics, known for their unique blend of melodic mysticism and improvisational activism, are once again turning their music inside out, exposing the complexity of Jewish identity, Black identity, and human identity. “Brother Moses Smote the Water” teams the Klezmatics with African American Jewish gospel singer Joshua Nelson. This vibrant and rousing live performance alternates between age-old Hebrew Passover songs, Nelson’s own brand of kosher gospel, and traditional Yiddish Klezmatics anthems.
