DAVKA is an acoustic group at the forefront of the new Jewish Renaissance. Based in San Francisco these three masterful musicians, have been performing modern Jewish music since 1992. Their third release (the first two, now out of print, are soon to be released on Tzadik) features their flowing melodic compositions and magical interplay in ten distinctive compositions drawing upon Sephardic and Ashkenazi traditions, jazz and classical chamber music. Beautiful, soulful music performed with astonishing technique and passion.



Davka is a modern Jewish renaissance trio making unique, acoustic arrangements that glean from jazz and chamber music, and incorporate the two into klezmer from sephardic and ashkenazi traditions. On Judith, they are joined by bassist Stuart Brotman, who also plays cymbalom, and Sheldon Brown, an exquisite clarinetist. The group weaves beautiful, original (except for the traditional "Von Der Khoppe") Jewish music that is less chamber jazz oriented than Zorn's Bar Khokba and Circle Maker Masada songbook projects, and more on par with the lush, more traditionally styled music of Psamim (who also had a 1999 release on the Tzadik label). An immediately apparent difference is Davka's Middle Eastern percussion work from Peter Maund. Violinist Daniel Hoffman's skill is highlighted by his amazing solos on such pieces as "Jericho" and "Ein Sof." Throughout the album there is terrific interaction between he and cellist Moses Sedler. Davka's music is warm and authentically beautiful, and the album's flow keeps a balance, off-setting the upbeat pieces and climactic soloing with wind-down pieces that fold softly.
