Wan­der­ing min­strels: Rebbe’s Orkestra

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

Ju­daic mu­sic en­com­passes folk songs, dance tunes, chants, and many other styles that have been passed down through the gen­er­a­tions and that have been in­flu­enced by the mu­sic of other cul­tures as Jewish peo­ple moved from coun­try to coun­try, look­ing for a home­land. The Rebbe’s Orkestra, a six-mem­ber band from Al­bu­querque, puts its own spin on the old-world wed­ding and party mu­sic of klezmer, tra­di­tional East­ern Euro­pean mu­sic that they in­fuse with sim­i­lar styles from Spain, Greece, and the Mediter­ranean. The Rebbe’s Orkestra brings its fid­dles, cym­bals, snare drums, gui­tars, man­dolins, ac­cor­dions, and a va­ri­ety of other in­stru­ments to Santa Fe for a con­cert, “The Story Is Enough,” at San Miguel Chapel (401 Old Santa Fe Trail) on Satur­day, Jan. 23, at 7:30 p.m. Tick­ets are $15 in ad­vance, avail­able at www.brownpapertick­ets.com, or $20 at the door.
