Basya Shechter: Everything "oud" is new again
The music of Basya Schechter defies description. Her psychedelic world-beat sound has been called archaic yet contemporary, raw yet sophisticated, spiritual yet terrestrial. Schechter was born in Brooklyn, New York but she has traveled the world to study musical traditions. Schechter's band is called Pharaoh's Daughter. They're in town for an unplugged show at the Dorshei Emet Synagogue in Hampstead.
Basya Schechter spoke with Sonali Karnick and even played the Oud.
