NEFESH originated at the former B'nai Chaim Congregation in Southbury, Connecticut providing music for synagogue events. Nefesh has grown into a professional, six member group playing throughout the Connecticut and Northeast region, dedicated to the preservation of the rich Jewish musical heritage and creating fresh interpretations of traditional and contemporary Jewish, Klezmer, Yiddish and Israeli music. From ancient Jewish melodies, exciting Klezmer music and Israeli horas to poignant, humorous and entertaining Yiddish classics, their style and repertoire encompasses many emotions. The band has brought audiences to their feet at events in and around Connecticut at numerous festivals and concerts. We have appeared at the North Eastern International Festival of Music & Dance (NOMAD), New England Jewish Festival of Music, Danbury First Nights, the Greater New Haven and Sherman Jewish Community Centers, Hadassah, Jewish Federation and Chabad events as well as numerous private parties, community functions and religious holiday celebrations.
