25th Anniversary

Medicine Singers ft. Lee Ranaldo & Yonatan Gat
Laraaji & Mamady Kouyaté
Maalem Hassan BenJaafar & Yonatan Gat

Hosted by WNYC's John Schaefer
Medicine Singers is the name of an ongoing collaboration between Yonatan Gat, the wildly virtuosic Israeli-born, New York-based guitarist, and the Eastern Medicine Singers, an Eastern Algonquin powwow group from Rhode Island. Now joined by the legendary Lee Ranaldo of Sonic Youth, Medicine Singers combines ancient trance and spirituality with modern psychedelia, and makes inventive use of the similarities – and differences – between the steady pulse of Indigenous American drumming and the rhythms of rock.

The New York Guitar Festival is made possible by the generosity of a grant from the Augustine Foundation.
