Afro-Semitic Experience
Whitneyville, CT 06517
The Afro-Semitic Experience is a band beyond category—they play jazz-world-soul-driven music. Their performances are celebrations of great music, stories, and offer a positive and meaningful message: Unity in the Community. Whether in concert or playing for a religious service, the combination of their artistry, wit, and reverence for the material makes for a moving, one-of-a-kind musical experience. Come participate!

The Afro-Semitic Experience also offer hands-on workshops to go along with their concert program where participants build their own drums and learn to perform traditional African (and African-American) and Jewish rhythms. In addition during the workshops they discuss and demonstrate the collaborative process of transforming pieces of sacred music into jazz and relate their personal experiences with Black/Jewish relations. They touch on a wide range of subjects including creating community, self-esteem, and building bridges between communities.
