Photos from The Afro-Semitic Experience concert in White Plains at the Hebrew Institute

The Afro-Semitic Experience
had a great performance last weekend at the Hebrew Institute in White Plains. The band played a show that lasted just over two hours and included music for Hanukkah as well as a touching tribute to the victims of the Newtown Massacre.  Warren Byrd sang up a storm and his rendition of the 23rd Psalm (in memory of the Newtown Massacre victims) brought the room to tears.
Leah, the band's new friend shot some video snippets of the concert and posted them on YouTube. Click here (Afro-Semitic Experience at the Hebrew Institute) to get to that video. Thanks Leah!!!

Leah also sent the band some great photos of the performance. Here's the group at sound check.

And here's a shot of of Abu Alvin Carter, Sr.  at his congas. Go Abu!!
