ABRAHAM INC. feat. DAVID KRAKAUER, FRED WESLEY & SoCALLED - Funk meets Klezmer

October / November 2019

A magical mashup of musical traditions, Abraham Incorporated unites three masters of their respective realms to create an irresistible new thing. It’s an inspiring, unexpected, danceable and delightful synergy of klezmer anchored by world-renowned clarinet virtuoso David Krakauer; hip hop celebrated by the sampler-wielding Canadian renaissance artist Socalled; and funk from Fred Wesley, one of the legendary architects of that genre.

FRED WESLEY, one of the great masters of funk through his amazing trombone playing and arranging with the likes of James Brown, Bootsy Collins, Parliament Funkadelic and others meets up w. DAVID KRAKAUER , SoCALLED and KLEZMER MADNESS in the search for that magic place where a combination of klezmer, funk, jazz and hip-hop can find a commonality of ecstatic trance. ...AN ALL-OUT KLEZMER-FUNK-DANCE PARTY!

"This endlessly surprising yet highly successful hybrid of klezmer, funk and hip-hop had the enthusiastic crowd - young and old, Jews and gentiles, whites and blacks - dancing ecstatically in the aisles like it was a Jewish wedding"
- JazzTimes   

„David Krakauer​ is to clarinettists what Jonas​ Kaufmann is to operatic tenors, Keith Jarrett to improvising pianists, Bela​ Fleck to banjo players and Zakir​ Hussain to tabla players. He is not just an utterly distinctive benchmark, he extends his instrument's potential in ways that mess with one's mind, while underpinning this with that fathomless emotional content.“
- John Shand, the Sydney Morning Herald
