|DeLEON makes “Spanish-Jewish indie rock” by infusing 15th Century Sephardic folk music with the deeply mysterious and entrancing cadences of the ancient Sephardic tradition. Their music, birthed in Spain before the Inquisition and raised in pre-WWII Italy, has finally reached maturity in modern-day Brooklyn. The band, named for 12th Century Kabalistic philosopher Moses DeLeon and front man Daniel Saks’ great-grandfather Giorgio DeLeon, reconciles Saks’ cultural journey with modern influences. They have toured with Gogol Bordello and recently completed a 20-city tour with Brazilian legends Os Mutantes.|
