BEACON, N.Y. -- World music group Pharaoh’s Daughter will perform April 14 at the Towne Crier Café in Beacon.
April 14.Body text:The group features Hasidic, Arabic and African genres of music. The show will benefit the Beacon Hebrew Alliance.
The band, led by Basya Schechter, offers crisp, pinpoint rhythms, rumbling, insistent bass, and Filmore-era organ lines that flirt with Eastern oud, santur, and kamanche for a unique and delightful musical experience.
Music legend Leonard Cohen has described the group’s music as “...such a delight. The groove, the purity, the skill [are] so fresh and yet so familiar, as the work of the heart always is."
To some, Pharaoh's Daughter sounds as if Pink Floyd and PJ Harvey crossed paths in an Israeli cafe and took a road trip to South Africa, joining up with Radiohead in Morocco along the way.
The band will share songs from its previous albums as well as debut a new collection called "Songs of Desire," which draws on the erotic and mystical aspects of the biblical Song of Songs.
