Since 2013, Newton native Hankus Netsky (piano and accordion) and Eden MacAdam-Somer (violin, voice, and percussive dance) have been blending Yiddish, Hassidic, and Klezmer melodies with their rich backgrounds in Western classical music, jazz, and global folk traditions. They lead the Department of Contemporary Improvisation at the New England Conservatory in Boston and are releasing their first Jewish music album, “Give Me Back My Heart,” this spring.

Hankus Netsky, a noted multi-instrumentalist, composer, and scholar of Jewish music, founded the Klezmer Conservatory Band, a globally recognized Yiddish ensemble. He has contributed significantly to Jewish music education and composition, collaborating with notable figures like Itzhak Perlman and Robin Williams.

Eden MacAdam-Somer, equally accomplished, has showcased her talents internationally, including performances in Afghanistan and China, and collaborates with various ensembles while maintaining a vibrant solo career. A Houston native, she refined her craft at prestigious music schools before joining Netsky in both performance and educational endeavors.
