Greek born musical arranger, lead guitarist, and bouzouki virtuoso Avram
Pengas is a versatile performer who plays popular Israeli hits, exotic Arabic
melodies, pulsating Persian and Turkish rhythms, Armenian dances and
traditional Yiddish songs. Born in Greece, Pengas is a skilled musical arranger,
guitarist, and self-taught bouzouki virtuoso. He creates music rooted in the
Mediterranean and the Middle East, and draws upon Eastern and Western
musical elements. Pengas has appeared in New York at El Avram, Café Feenjon,
and in 1979, opened his own nightclub, Noga, in the heart of Greenwich Village.
He has performed in the off-Broadway production of Hot Klezmer, and can still
be heard weekly at SoHo’s Cupping Room Café. Pengas’ Noga Group has been a
staple of New York’s downtown music scene for nearly twenty years. . The
resulting vibe is fresh and innovative. Ethnic! Of course. Jazzy? Definitely.
Modern, infectious, and kinetic!
