Janam at The Monkey House

November 6, 2015 at 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm

Hi folks. We will be playing a very special show on November 6 at The Monkey House in north Berkeley. This will be Lila's last performance with us (sad face) and we want to send her off in style.

Janam unites some of the Bay Area's most playful and imaginative devotees of Balkan, Turkish and Appalachian music, who weave together Eastern modalities, gritty mountain ballads and their own colorful compositions. Janam features: Dan Auvil, percussion, voice & kaval; Tom Farris, laouto & guitar; Juliana Graffagna, voice & accordion; Gari Hegedus, oud, saz, mandocello & mandolin; and Lila Sklar, violin & voice.

Our albums Janam and The Space Between are available on cdbaby:
