The music of the Middle East, Africa, Israel, Egypt, Central Africa, Turkey, Kurdistan and Greece blended with psychedelic sensibility and a pan-Mediterranean sensuality....the sound of Pharaoh's Daughter.
Join us for a free, community concert for all ages and all backgrounds as Jacksonville welcomes New York-based ensemble Pharaoh's Daughter. Led by multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Basya Schechter, the band has performed all over America, Eastern and Western Europe, as well as Greece, South America, and the UK since its inception more than 20 years ago.
The band reads as a who's who amongst the New York Jazz, Classical, and World music scenes. For specific bios and more information about the band, go to:
