Center For Arts & Equity


Led by violinist Jake Shulman-Ment, Midwood is a psychedelic klezmer celebration of freedom and the Jewish tradition of wandering and migration. This new supergroup, featuring some of New York City’s most exciting young performers on the international world music stage, seamlessly traverses borders through original compositions, expansive improvisations on traditional melodies, and heart-wrenching re-imaginings of Yiddish folk songs. Their debut album on Chant Records, Out of the Narrows, draws from deep Eastern European Jewish roots to explore the power of love, movement, and wilderness to transform the human mind and heart.

Jake Shulman-Ment – violin (Daniel Kahn, Frank London, Di Naye Kapelye)
Yoshie Fruchter – guitar (John Zorn, Zion 80, Pitom)
Richie Barshay – drums (Herbie Hancock, The Klezmatics, Esperanza Spalding)
