The Hungarian Cultural Center is presenting Sounds of the Ghetto, a special avantgarde musical endeavor as the finissage of the exhibition at WhiteBox. Grammy Award winner Frank London teams up with Guy Barash and Eyal Maoz to present a special musical program inspired by urban spaces that used to be Ghettos at a certain point of history. The improvisational program will reflect on the theme and also on the exhibits, created by young Hungarian Artists.

Guitarist Eyal Maoz is known internationally for his work in improvised and new Jewish music, with the group Abraxas and many cds on John Zorn’s Tzadik label. Composer/performer Guy Barash just released his first recording of chamber music. His first opera will be premiered this year.
