Multi-instrumentalists Moksha Sommer and Jemal Wade Hines join forces as HuDost, a world music group for which that title seems too limiting. They bring the definition to life as Sommer sings in at least a dozen languages, often taking on the identity of the characters she sings about. The music is often driven by language, though the music and rhythms often give it as much personality. As part of the Off the Record series on this night, you’ll hear more of the stories behind the songs they’ll be performing.
