Nigunim and zmiros are songs of devotion and praise: spiritual Hasidic-Jewish chants whose purpose is to induce a state of piety and ecstasy in both performer and listener. With Nigunim Trio, vocalist Lorin Sklamberg and trumpeter Frank London (co-founders of the Klezmatics) are joined by pianist Rob Schwimmer to perform these beautiful melodies with their uniquely styled musical and spiritual imprint. The program will contain music from their three recordings: “Nigunim,” “The Zmiros Project,” and “tsuker-zis.”
