Charming Hostess & Zoyres holiday show with winter songs.
Charming Hostess is a music ensemble at the intersection of voice, text and diaspora consciousness. Founded by Jewlia Eisenberg in 1998, the mission of Charming Hostess is to make lovely noise about complex ideas.  Their music is based on the sounding body: voices and winds, handclaps and heartbeats, sex-breath and silence. They are known for their whirl of eerie harmony, hot rhythm, and radical smarts.  This holiday show will feature winter songs of darkness, joy and mystery.  Charming Hostess is also presenting music from their installation,The Bowls Project (Tzadik, 2010).  Based on inscriptions from Babylonian Jewish amulets known as "demon bowls," The Bowls Project sings of sex, ritual and secrets of the home.  Previous recordings include Sarajevo Blues (Tzadik, 2005), settings of Bosnian resistance poetry, and Trilectic (Tzadik, 2002), a look at the political-erotic world of Walter Benjamin.

Zoyres Eastern European Wild Ferment performs original and Eastern European traditional music (klezmer, Balkan, etc.), approaching these from both a "traditional" and stretched out /experimental framework.

The name "Zoyres" derives from the Yiddish term for fermented vegetables, "zoyers." These foods have been transformed by culture and community (of the microbial sort) through incredible biochemical fermentation processes. These "cultural" transformations underlie our own cultural development, as humans have relied and reveled in fermented foods for millennia. Zoyres' music represents the geo-social analogue to the biochemical ferment. Our music, of Eastern European origin, brined in the contemporary cultural milieu, is akin to the pickle, still evident in its cucumbral origin, but with a taste and texture transformed.
