The Epichorus performs the music of roots, new songs based in ancient sounds; they are lineage holders of traditions from Greece, Egypt, Syria, and India. Priya Darshini, serenades in sounds beyond language, moving fluidly between Hebrew, Hindi, and Aramaic, backed by [masterful] oud, violin, accordion, rhythm and bass. Come ready to be transported by ethereal music reminiscent of a loftier home.
