New York Music Daily once described our music perfectly as "Epically Haunting Lynchian Klezmer Jazz." Meshugenah explores a mix of new original music and uniquely reimagined interpretations and arrangements of traditional secular Jewish music, catered to the nostalgically progressive audience of the 21st century. The music is at times gnarly, yet always with the underlying sense of yearning, sorrow and joy which makes this music so rich with emotion. Simply put, Meshugenah resonates with a sense of nostalgic novelty, serving as a musical meditation, exploring the magic of the past while languishing the beautiful mystery of the unknown.
