Darshan is a groundbreaking collaboration between world-soul singer Basya Schechter (Pharaoh's Daughter) and esoteric indie rapper ePRHYME (Eden Pearlstein). Joined by an all-star cast of diverse musicians, the result is a kaleidoscopic fusion of Hip Hop, Rock, World, Soul, and Jewish music like you've never heard before.

Raza is a radical reimagining of the Kabbalat Shabbat service, the traditional prayers and mystical poetry recited on Friday night to welcome the Sabbath Bride. Seamlessly interweaving a dizzying array of influences and inspirations from East to West, Raza transforms this most beloved of Jewish liturgical rites into a genre-defying work of sacred pop art.
