WNMU Cultural Affairs hosts a livestream concert with Duke City Hora “Live from Light Hall” on Tuesday, October 27, 2020.
Duke City Hora is an Albuquerque based band performing Klezmer music (a musical tradition of the Ashkenazi Jews of Eastern Europe), featuring Jordan Wax of Lone Piñon on accordion and Yiddish vocals, Margot Leverett on clarinet and Charlotte Overby on upright bass.
Margot Leverett is a living master of klezmer, an infectiously joyous and heart-breakingly poignant musical tradition she inherited from the generation of clarinetists who brought the tradition to America. Accompanied by Wax and Overby, the trio will play a selection of the diverse styles, rhythms, and Yiddish songs that make up the klezmer repertoire, as well as share cultural context and stories about the vibrant culture alive in the melodies.
