Michelle Alany’s captivating fiddle-driven caravan of Klezmer, Balkan, Sephardic, and Jazz Manouche are spiced up with a southern fiddle twist and her otherworldly originals. Along with her ensemble The Mystics – seasoned jazz, classical and globally astute musicians – her upcoming concert at Café Artichoke is a harvest full of fiery music with metres and melodies way different than most radio and television music these days. All this and belly dancing too!

Violinist vocalist and songwriter Michelle Alany is a dynamic performer and an internationally touring ambassador of world folk traditions, specializing in Sephardic, Mediterranean and Eastern music.

Just back from a busy summer tour performing in many European cities, Michelle Alany & The Mystics, perform Saturday November 4 at the newly-relocated Café Artichoke, 2007 SE Powell Blvd. The doors open at 7:30 and all ages are welcome.

Alany’s fiddle-driven caravan of Klezmer, Balkan, Sephardic, Jazz Manouche and fiery, otherworldly originals is spiced with a southern fiddle twist and aided by globally astute co-creators.
