The Bowls Project
"The Bowls Project is an exciting new recording by Charming Hostess, one of the most consistently creative and explorative ensembles working today. Based on inscriptions found on ancient Babylonian Jewish amulets, the texts speak of mysticism and magic, angels and demons, and the trials and joys of love and sex. Especially audible are the voices of women here-- their work, hopes, and dreams. Using music drawn from the rich traditions of the Babylonian Jews and sources both Jewish and African, The Bowls Project is one of the most personal projects to date by this radical west coast ensemble."
