Joe's Pub Live! From the Archives: Divahn
While Joe's Pub is temporarily closed to public access, join us for Joe's Pub Live! – a free series of live-streamed and achieved performances from our iconic stage in New York City. Facilitating social connectivity during this time of physical distancing, Joe's Pub remains dedicated to supporting performing artists at every stage of their careers through sharing concerts with our audiences each Thursday, Friday & Saturday night at 8PM Eastern.
Iranian-descended singer Galeet Dardashti leads the all-female power-house Middle Eastern Jewish ensemble, Divahn. The New York City-based group has gained an international following with its fresh and fiery renditions of traditional and original Sephardi/Mizrahi Jewish songs: lush string arrangements, eclectic Indian, Middle Eastern, and Latin percussion, and vocals spanning Hebrew, Judeo-Spanish, Persian, Arabic, and Aramaic. “Divahn,” a word common to Hebrew, Persian, and Arabic, means a collection of songs or poetry. Through its music, Divahn underscores common ground between diverse Middle Eastern cultures and religions.
Like all Joe's Pub shows all ages are welcome, but please be aware that performances may include adult language and topics.
At this time, our Live! from the Archives videos are no longer available for streaming. To see all our currently available livestreams, please visit us on Youtube at: www.Youtube.com/JoespubNY.
Recorded live at Joe's Pub on March 7, 2020.
