Daniela Gesundheit: Alphabet of Wrongdoing

Alphabet of Wrongdoing is the newest musical project from Snowblink’s Daniela Gesundheit, exploring ceremonial Jewish prayer songs and blessings that encircle themes of reckoning, forgiveness, mortality, striving, and atonement, reimagined for secular audiences and secular spaces. The texts and melodies are traditional and ancient; the context and arrangements are modern, impressionistic, and subversive. This performance acts as a communal investigation of gestures of forgiveness—in the words of poet Alan Felsenthal, an attempt to “restore dignity to experience through music.”
