AllMusic Review by

Davka's soulful contemporary approach to traditional Jewish music blends Middle Eastern and Eastern European sounds with the improvisational spirit of jazz. In Hebrew, davka means "contrary to what is expected." True to its name, this inspired blend of musical influences will open your ears to a whole new world of Jewish music beyond the klezmer tradition. The stirring melodies and exotic rhythms of Davka combine classical technique, the passion of gypsy music, Arabic rhythms, and searing improvisations.
