🎼 Niggen is an original jazz ensemble that creates new Hasidic Jewish music.
Within Hasidism, the “niggen” (melody) is a tool used to awaken the soul toward spiritual reflection. The melody is believed to have a power to rid man of the mundane, day-to-day dust, and elevate him unto higher states of connection with the creator and all of creation. There are melodies that bring the soul to joy and those that bring it to longing. There are melodies evoking heroism and those evoking inner peace.
The Niggen Quartet translates these traditional Hasidic melodies into contemporary jazz.
