The critically-acclaimed progressive string band Nefesh Mountain ingeniously blends Bluegrass and Old-Time musical stylings with cultural influences from their own Jewish heritage, reimagining a world of American roots music that is all their own.
Leaders and husband and wife team Eric Lindberg and Doni Zasloff are at the heart of the band, pioneering this new genre alongside band members Alan Grubner, Dave Goldenberg and Tim Kiah.
Their music, called "Highly eclectic" by Rolling Stone, and "Crisp, refined, timeless Bluegrass" by The Bluegrass Situation is complete with the kind of musically adept string virtuosity and through composed arrangements one would hope for from a dynamic newgrass band. Their original songs, whether drawing influence from the Bluegrass, Old-Time, Celtic, Jazz, or folk traditions are all "Songs of the heart" for writers Eric and Doni, and collectively work to spread the beautiful messages of diversity, oneness, and equality for our world today.
