Lost Tribe to Perform at SCJS Conference

Hal Aqua and The Lost Tribe play klezmer fusion music — an exuberant musical experience, rooted firmly in traditional Jewish modes and melodies and driven by contemporary rhythms and danceable grooves. The Lost Tribe has been selected to perform the Judy Frankel Memorial Concert at the Society of Crypto-Judaic Studies Conference in Denver on Monday, July 1, 2019.

The versatile musicians who make up The Lost Tribe have a deep respect for their source material, from the evocative tunes of Eastern European Jews and gypsies to the sinuous rhythms of the Middle East and Mediterranean.

In the long-standing Jewish tradition of absorbing musical inspiration from surrounding cultures, The Lost Tribe steeps their songs in a broth spiced with rock, reggae, salsa, funk and blues influences, serving up an irresistible party vibe.

The band includes Hal Aqua (vocals, acoustic and electric guitars, octave mandolin, ukulele), Annie Aqua (violin, vocals), Ben Cohen (electric and acoustic bass, tuba ,trumpet, accordion, vocals), Shanti Hazan (drums and percussion), and Miriam Rosenblum (clarinet, recorders, button accordion). Especially for this occasion, the Lost Tribe debuts its long-awaited world music album, heavily influenced by Sephardic, Ladino and Mizrachi sources.

For more information or to register, go to cryptojews.com and click on Conference.  Single day or full registration is available. Membership in the Society is not required. The conference is open to all. With thanks in part  to the Mizel Museum, the Museo de Las Americas, Theatre Or and Temple Aaron.

About Staff

They call me "NewsHound III," because I'm a smart Cookie, sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was adopted from the Humane Society of Boulder Valley and have many friends there also looking for homes.
