Daniela Gesundheit:Alphabet of Wrongdoing LP release featuring Johnny Spence, Phil Melanson, Alex Lukashevsky and special guests.
$22 Regular / $18 Advance / $15 Members / $10 Students
In Alphabet of Wrongdoing, Snowblink’s Daniela Gesun dheit reimagines ceremonial Jewish prayers and blessings encircling themes of reckoning, forgiveness, mortality, striving, and atonement. The texts and melodies are traditional and ancient; the context and arrangements are modern, impressionistic, and subversive. Both the album and the performance investigate communal gestures of forgiveness — attempts to ”Restore dignity to existence through music…” (poet Alan Felsenthal) . In her “ethereal voice” (The Globe and Mail) Gesundheit asks: Can we transmute a world’s weight of unforgivable acts, an Alphabet of Wrongdoing?
