Minnush plays living Sephardic music. They incorporate contemporary influences and give traditional songs new life featuring improvisation, storytelling and virtuosic musicianship by members Susan Gaeta, Gina Sobel, Trevor Pietsch and Kevin Johnson. The group had its beginnings in Gina’s Virginia Folklife apprenticeship to Susan, who was apprenticed to the great Flory Jagoda ten years earlier. It grew out of an urge to do what folk music has always done – naturally incorporate new influences and reflect the world around it. In this way, Minnush adds elements of American folk and jazz, while shedding light on the immigration and refugee stories that the songs carry. Minnush is serious, joyful, forward moving and eminently fresh.
