Ya Elah, the women's vocal ensemble, returns to KALW with a new line-up of singers and musicians.   Their spiritual songs combine the rhythms and melodies of Balkan and Middle Eastern music with sacred and liturgical texts.  Our other guests include two great acoustic guitarists--Steve Baughman and Nina Gerber (who has accompanied the late Kate Wolf, as well as Dave Alvin, Nanci Griffith, and Peter Rowan).
