5PM Pacific Time Zone / 8PM Eastern Time Zone
The third album by Trumpeter Ben Holmes, Naked Lore, is described as an exploration of what makes Jewish music sound Jewish. “I love the idea of being a guy who is often perceived as non-Jewish, but is,” Holmes says, “while exploring a sound that is often identified strongly as Jewish, but isn’t. Naked Lore is to be the soundtrack of Jewish folk history, from the ancient to the contemporary to a future yet to be conceived; from the Middle East to the shtetl to the Diaspora.” (Jewish Exponent) Join Holmes as he engages with attendees and explores the inspirations behind his newest album.
This event is made possible by the Lowell Milken Center for Music of American Jewish Experience at The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music.
