Welcome to IndyBuzz

IndyBuzz provides information about Central Indiana's most stimulating and thought provoking events -- discussions and conferences, art exhibitions, films, music performances. It tells you what's happening … explains why you should be part of what’s happening. More than an events calendar, though, IndyBuzz tries to make events more meaningful for participants by suggesting an article or two to read before the event, recommending books or websites that will be sources of further information after the event, and pointing out related events that are worth attending.

Nov. 9: The Diaspora and the Homecoming

Musical performance by Indyklez, dance interpretation by Jordan Dance Ensemble, plus interpretations and stories!

When: Wednesday 9 November, 7:00-9:00 PM

Where: Arthur M. Glick Jewish Community Center, 6701 Hoover Road, Indianapolis

This evening should be fun, interesting, and important. The Jewish Diaspora ("dispersing" from the Promised Land) is an ancient and modern story of "Moving and Staying," reflected here in musical perspective. Indyklez plays traditional East European/Jewish folk music. You’re surely familiar with the sound of klezmer groups. Much more diverse and complex music than the simple group composition — violin, clarinet, accordion, guitar, bass, drums, and male vocalist— might lead you to think. This program of Eastern European, Russian, Sephardic, Israeli, and liturgical music will be interspersed with narration, storytelling, and interpretations of the music by the Jordan Dance Ensemble. Joining Indyklez will be Rabbi Sandy E. Sasso and Cantor Giora Sharon of Congregation Beth-El Zedeck. On this anniversary of Kristallnacht, which began the tragic events of the Holocaust, celebrate the survival of the Jewish people, their culture, and their songs. Free will offering, donations accepted.

If you’d like a flavor of Indyklez’s music, check out their website at www.indyklez.com, where they have several samples of songs posted. Listen, for instance to their version of the classic “Odessa Bulgar.” For a nice contrast, compare this to the ska-influenced NY klezmer group, Klezska! (Indyklez is a very good band, but if someone wants to invite Klezska! to Indianapolis, I will be a happy guy.)
