JIMENA Happy Hour + Yemen Blues Plays Hallel

November 7th, 6:00– 7:45 PM

Jupiter 2181 Shattuck Ave, Berkeley


As part of their world premiere tour, Yemen Blues is coming to Freight & Salvage in Berkeley! Join JIMENA’s Young Professionals for drinks and nosh before the show. We will meet for Happy Hour at a nearby bar and restaurant, Jupiter, then head to the concert together.

Yemen Blues Presents: “The Great Hallel”. A Yemenite Jewish culture and ancient Arabic sounds with danceable Afro Funk grooves. The mambo and North African rhythms create a joyful and deep foundation, while the vocals remind the listener of ancient Arabic chants mixed with funk & blues.

This special project, Hallel (Hebrew: הלל” , Praise”) is a Jewish Prayer, a verbatim recitation from Psalms 113–118, which is recited by observant Jews on holy days as an act of praise and thanksgiving. The new compositions presented by this project are carefully derived from Kahalani’s thoughtful reading into the deep spiritual meaning of the holy text from Tehillim (Psalms). Dive with Hallel into the deepest secrets that well up through those words of praise, which tell the story of each of us as human beings before the maker and as individuals in this world.
