Holly's long-awaited debut release, Wild Earth Shebrew, infuses world rhythms, shamanic sensibilities and ecstatic chant. Traditional and original compositions wevae together to create an intimate, archetypal experience touching deep streams of consciousness. From the funk of Four Worlds to the hip hop harmonies of Holy, Holy, Wild Earth Shebrew invites you to dance your prayers. African-inspired djembe rhthyms on We Emobdy Shechina and Ahava Raba, middle-eastern doumbek and riqq on Amidah, nyabinghi heartbeat on Shema and Aleynu, and the ectatic kirtan of Ela Malka complete the world influences of the album. Sacred, sensual and sassy, WIld Earth Shebrew carries us to a sublime realm where Judaism, earth and woman converge in deep-rooted bliss.
