The Group "Melafefonim" is a musical project in Russia in which the musical tradition is organically connected with the classical performing schools.
Founders and members of the band, composed of excellent instrumentalists, well known in the musical scene of Moscow and beyond, consider themselves followers and successors of the outstanding clarinetist Giora Feidman, one of the first who was able to give traditional Jewish musical themes a "Philharmonic" sound.
As we welcome another Shabbat, we like to help usher it in with renditions of traditional songs from the Friday night liturgy. Here is the Gruppa Melafefonim performing Shalom Aleichem.
Enjoy and Shabbat Shalom!
