Salaam, Shalom, Coming Together
Lior Tsarfaty is an internationally-touring singer, songwriter, recording artist and director of Prayer Songs Project, an ensemble founded in order to create a context where music from a diverse range of cultures and traditions could be combined and explored in unique ways. His debut CD "The Prayer Songs Project" features Tsarfaty's warm, textured vocals and renowned musicians from Israel (Yossi Fine), India, Morocco and the United States (Jennifer Berezan, cellist Jami Sieber, pianist John R. Burr). For this special evening Lior will partner with Moroccan multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Bouchaib Abdelhadi in leading an ensemble of international musicians including Elaine Kreston on cello and Karina Jacinda Small on vocals.
Bouchaib Abdelhadi, a native of Casablanca, Morocco, has had a distinguished musical career on both sides of the Atlantic playing with world-renowned musicians Carlos Santana, the "King of Rai" Cheb Kalid, and for the Alvin Ailey and Alonso King companies.
