Nomadic Pentameter

Sunday 3pm-4pm, Thursday 7pm-8pm


Nomadic Pentameter is a seasonal program featuring Jewish musicians.

Nomadic Pentameter is a seasonal program on WDNA Public Radio. The name reflects the many rhythms of an ancient but living diaspora. By exploring a spectrum of genres, Nomadic Pentameter demonstrates that music unites Jews from a variety of backgrounds within their shared culture.

 

From classic, iconic, and modern jazz, to Broadway show tunes, Klezmer, folk music, and even rock, Jewish music is constantly evolving. Each week, we talk to unique Jewish artists and learn about what inspires their work.

 

A new segment this 2020 season, Inspirational Interlude, features Rabbi Levi Friedman who presents a moment of wisdom for listeners to contemplate regardless of their faith.

 

Through the interview, musical, and spiritual components, Nomadic Pentameter is a thought-provoking show. Jewish music undergoes frequent change to remain relevant, but Nomadic Pentameter also searches for elements of Jewish music and culture that have stood the test of time.

 

Nomadic Pentameter, Season Two aired on WDNA January 19 – March 26, 2020.

 

NP continues with special re-broadcasts of interviews and music with young piano prodigy, Brandon Goldberg and composer and director of the Klezmer Company Jazz Orchestra, Aaron Kula. Be sure to listen in at 88.9fm or WDNA.org <3
