Aural alchemist David Krakauer, with co-conspirators hip-hop beatmaster Socalled and legendary funk and jazz trombonist Fred Wesley (of James Brown and Parliament-Funkadelic fame), create a masterly mash-up of klezmer, funk and hip hop “to ecstatic effect” (The New Yorker) as Abraham Inc. Joined onstage by a seven-piece cohort of astounding back-up musicians, including Bronx-based rapper C-Rayz Walz, Abraham Inc. will instigate a hand-clapping, hip-shaking, head-bouncing dance party.

Abraham Inc. is “connected with something deep, mysterious, and timeless…as ancient as the sound of the Shofar...yet as modern as the…young hipsters at downtown venues“ (Jazziz).
