Everything about Atzilut is mixed—except its message. This ensemble of Jewish and Arab musicians plays the music of many traditions on instruments such as tabla, dumbek, and djembe. They play non-western Hebrew spiritual music rooted in the melodic traditions of the Middle East, Balkan, Judeo-Spanish, and Eastern European (klezmer) styles. Their repertory draws from a Greek Jewish wedding dance, a setting of Psalm 19, a Turkish dance medley, an Arabic love song, and a bilingual version of “Hineh ma tov” (how good it is for brothers to dwell together in peace). 7:30 p.m., Foy Hall. $12, $6 seniors and students.
