and reports about Brooklyn Nomads:
... The Brooklyn-based ensemble is a collective of accomplished Arab, Turkish, classical and jazz musicians that started their nomadic journey in the heart of New York City. Interpreting Middle Eastern folk music through cultural and musical backgrounds as diverse as Brooklyn itself, the Nomads put a contemporary spin on a traditional Arabic repertoire from Lebanon, Syria, Iraq and beyond.
