WORLD MUSIC | "Azafea"



This Monday, Temple B'rith Kodesh will provide the elegant setting for a transporting musical experience that melds Spanish and Jewish musical traditions. Presented by the Rochester Synagogue Council, "Azafea, a Spanish Odyssey: Music From the Sephardic Diaspora" features the mesmerizing Lev-Yulzari Duo. Guitarist Nadav Lev and bassist Remy Yulzari play a beautiful synthesis of classical guitar music and Jewish folk with tinges of klezmer and the avant-garde. This robust concert will also include dynamic trumpeter Frank London of the Klezmatics and the earthy yet ethereal vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Basya Schechter of Pharaoh's Daughter. "Azafea" is a rare concert for Rochester listeners with an ear for the adventurous.

"Azafea" takes place on Monday, June 26, at Temple B'rith Kodesh, 2131 Elmwood Avenue. 7 p.m. $20. 340-7080;
