Album Notes
Downtown Music Gallery, the first to review Pharaoh's Daughter's music says:

"Pharaoh's Daughter - Daddy's Pockets (self released) It seems as if klez bands have been crawling out of the woodwork rcently in NYC, but I gotta admit that Pharaoh's Daughter is one of the best & brightest to emerge from this ever-expanding scene.

What makes them unique is that tye play all original material written by their leader - vocalsits and acoustic guitarist Basya Schechter, and consist of many women, with almost no traditional songs to be found.

It is the fine blend of Basya's acoustic guitar, Adam Levy (from TJ Kirk & Trevor Dunn Trio) & Benoir on el. guitars, Tracey Love's flute and crumhorn, Martha Colby's cello and two exotic percussionists that makes this blend so special. It is also Basya's deep & compelling voice, powerful acoustic guitar playing and mesmerizing middle eastern melodies that make this entire cd so wondrous."

"Basya's music borrows echoes from the prayer-filled cadences of her youth as a fervently Orthodox girl in the haredi world of Borough Park, Brooklyn, weaves them with MIddle Eastern syncopation and ties it all in with her hip New York chick's ironic sensibility to create something totally original." (Debra Nussbaum, JTA)

"I want more of this band, much more! They are so good!" (Derek Reid, fRoots)

"Pharaoh's Daughter is one of the most original and exciting groups to have emerged from the new Jewish Music movement." (Ben Frandzel, Rhythm)

Pharaoh's Daughter is a fantastic blend of folk, rock & middle eastern rythms
Pharaoh's Daughter is a fantastic blend of folk, rock & soulful middle eastern rythms. It is an amazing collection.


This is the third CD of Pharaoh's Daughter that I have purchased and I find myself playing it over and over again. Terrific!
