      Dear Friends,

      Now that the period of the Three Weeks is over we can get back to the
      music. It's a great way to come together during this time of crisis
      for Jews everywhere, and demonstrate our unity to the world, to
      ourselves and to our Creator. In the merit of our spirit of
      brotherhood, may the Holy One protect us from our enemies and usher
      in the era of Peace, may it be soon in our days!

      Jewish Music Album of the Week: KolFusion's debut "Eternal Drive" is
      a great blend of musical genres as the name implies. With classic
      rock arrangements and great harmonies, Eric and Dovid sound like a
      modern Simon and Garfunkel or Cat Stevens, but they sing a calypso
      Modeh Ani! Their most eclectic track is Shimon's niggun, where they
      start off singing folk style in a Major key, transform the tune into
      freygish klezmer with a hora beat, and then take it into Dixieland
      jazz with a full horn section. In addition to the all original
      songs, there are two great covers: Aaron Razel's "Hineh Hasneh" and
      Rabbi Moshe Shur's "Sameiach" (the way it's meant to be played with
      an easy rhythm, not how it's done at weddings today) - with the
      addition of some great harmonica. Download free clips and get info
      on where to buy the CD: http://kolfusion.com

      Have a great Shabbos!
