I constantly create projects with other people and Patreon is a great way to support me, my family, and my colleagues.
Unlike other fundraisers that are tied to an individual project, Patreon is a monthly subscription.
Patreon has been supporting Creatives for almost a decade. Please sign up today!
I am a seasoned musicologist, performer, and band leader in global folk music styles for 30 years.
I have a Bachelor's Degree in Clarinet performance and I study music extensively in Turkey and India.
I am known for my world music playing and productions including Tarab Retreat, performing in Denver Center Performing Arts’s Klezmer play by Paula Vogel, Indecent, founding the Farabi Iranian Ensemble, and heading up the Eastern European style party band, Klezmerize.
Community Outreach include Denver Sister Cities and Denver Spring Institute events, Musical Ambassadors of Peace Benefit Concerts, playing for Colorado Senate sessions, Yo Yo Ma’s 2018 Colorado Tour, Roshni Denver and the Boulder Balkan Bash.
Music and dance build bridges from the past to the future by basking in the present.
Veelah Balkan Band started out from Meg York and Jesse Manno's passion for Balkan brass band style of funk. It's now Klezmerize with Romanian accordionist Florin Alexanderescue, Ben Cohen and Pascal Diez.
