Why 'The Shuk'?

 

More than just a strum of the guitar. More than the rhythm of the drums or a note plucked on the violin.  Music is about harmony. It is about the warmth you generate, the connection you established between people, and the community you create.

This has been the very idea that has driven The Shuk (meaning ‘Market’ or 'Marketplace' in Hebrew); A band and collective music project that has its roots in traditional Jewish Music and has expanded to World Music; blending in elements of Jazz, Rock, Ethnic and Progressive Music.  Our forte has been to present Roots Music with a revolutionary and modern twist. This embodies our very idea of art – one that creates a dialogue between cultures and is an exchange that stimulates compassion.

 

This element of musical and cross-cultural fusion has been the core principle since our foundation in 2008.  We understand that beyond the words, music connects souls.  Its an inherent element in human contact for thousands of years.

 

Music crosses borders of language, region, political beliefs, and brings us together. It allows one person to take up a note and lets another complete it with his or her own. We speak your language through the music of your land and introduce you to ours with infusions of our own.

 

From cultural and world music festivals to theaters across the world, to community centers, synagogues, Jewish weddings, tour groups, and private events, we blend in every ambiance and bring it to life, note by note.

 

Having performed over 30 countries across the globe, we've struck a chord with audiences worldwide. The artists who make up The Shuk, bring their unique talents and personas to create an infectious synergy and energy to each event. The international press often describes The Shuk as “high-energy”, “cross-genre”, and “Jewish Fusion.”

We continuously strive to achieve and grow as we seek to understand the rhythm of people across the world, by touching lives and seeking to create real human connections.
