Hevruta BeMusika is an artistic performance which combines hevruta methodology with an intellectually creative process.
Inspired by Valeria Conte's Aleph Bet Vision Project, the performance is the elaboration in music of a discussion over Jewish texts led by the musicians as part of the rehearsals time. Made up by three female professionals bringing their own expertise in the genres of Klezmer, Arabic-Jazz, and Gypsy-Roma music and bringing them together through improvisation and original compositions inspired by the discussion over the texts. A limited number of rules on how to improvise and compose extempore will be set with the aim of creating musical performances.
Valeria Conte: clarinet
Lotta-Maria Pitkänen: violin
Isabel Douglass: accordion
