Cross-Cultural Music Tour

Saturday, December 28, 2013

For this New Sounds, we’ll listen to some of Charming Hostess/Jewlia Eisenberg’s strange & brilliant “The Bowls Project,” based on inscriptions from earthernware bowls buried under Jewish houses in ancient Babylonia, also called “demon bowls.”  According to Jewlia Eisenberg’s writings on the project, “Demon bowls, or incantation bowls, were inscribed with a householder’s secrets and desires and then buried under the doorway to protect her home.  The requests found in the bowls are particular, yet timeless--calling for protection for children, health after miscarriage, release from gossipy neighbors, a loyal husband, a passionate lover.”
