Avram - Hi Quallity Blue Background

AVRAM PENGAS (Bouzouki, Guitar, Vocals).

Born in Greece, Pengas’ extraordinary talent and quicksilver fingers led him from playing lead guitar in the Israeli Air Force Band to performing at New York’s celebrated venues, such as Avery Fisher Hall, Alice Tully Hall, and Town Hall. A skilled musical arranger, lead guitarist and self-taught virtuoso on the bouzouki, a stringed Greek instrument, Pengas creates music that is rooted in the Mediterranean and the Middle East and draws upon Eastern and Western musical elements. In the early 70s, Pengas appeared at El Avram and the Cafe Feenjon nightspots in New York City.

In 1979, he opened his own nightclub, “Noga,” in the heart of New York’s Greenwich Village. It was there that be and a Close circle of versatile, like-minded performers showcased their wide-ranging tastes and talents as a part of the Noga Group. Pengas’ first album, “NOGA,” captured the group’s, and (he club’s, spirit and sound. Since then, he has appeared in concerts and music festivals throughout the United States, including the Bethlehem Musikfest, Yidstock, and the Jewish Arts Festival of Commack, as well as Israel’s annual Klezmorim Festival in Zefat. 

Avram has also lent his talents to the Off-Broadway production of Hot Klezmer,
Pengas can still be heard most often in the clubs of downtown Manhattan.

 

Herring Run Kitchens will cater the after movie reception.

 

"A truly, madly, deeply moving love story, inventively told and powerfully evocative of time and place." — Kenneth Turn, Los Angeles Times

"It's not often that we are shown something that we want to believe in, but gave up on as the fancy of childhood.  True love does happen, and that the glory of it is only matched by the pain of its departure." — John Beveridge, Executive Producer @Large Films
