Global Voices Summer Shabbat

As the granddaughter of Yona Dardashti, the most renowned singer of Persian classical music in Iran in his day, and daughter of highly esteemed cantor Farid Dardashti, Middle Eastern vocalist and composer Galeet Dardashti is the first woman in her family to continue her family tradition of distinguished Persian and Jewish musicianship. Galeet also pursues her passion for Jewish music and culture as an anthropologist. She holds a Ph.D. in anthropology, specializing in cultural politics and contemporary Middle Eastern/Arab music in Israel. She is currently Assistant Professor of Jewish Music and Musician-in-Residence at the Jewish Theological Seminary, and she has published widely on her work. She offers residencies, lectures, and workshops on her artistic and academic work.

Monajat (a reimagining of the Selichot ritual)

led by Galeet Dardashti
Followed by a short Selichot service led by our clergy

Monajat with Galeet Dardashti re-imagines the Selichot  ritual in collaboration with an acclaimed ensemble of musicians, an electronic soundscape, and dynamic live video art. Monajat is a Persian word meaning an intimate dialogue with the Divine. Using Persian melodies and Hebrew texts, the work pays homage to Dardashti's grandfather, a master Persian classical vocalist. She performs some of the Persian piyutim (liturgical songs) traditionally chanted as part of the Selichot service, as well as other liturgical and non-liturgical Hebrew and Persian poetry set to new music. Through electronics, she defies time and performs with her grandfather. Join us for this holy and unique experience, which will be followed by a short Selichot service led by our TBE clergy.
