With Support from the Seattle Sephardic Network
Founded by woodwind virtuosos Nina Stern and Daphna Mor, East of the River braids together the rich musical traditions of the Sephardic diaspora, inflecting the music with infectious Eastern rhythms, and steeping their performance in the art of improvisation.
