Husband & Wife team Doni Zasloff and Eric Lindberg are two of the most celebrated musicians in Jewish music today. Together, they make up the two groups Nefesh Mountain, and The Mama Doni Band for kids and families. For Doni and Eric, Nefesh Mountain is the place where Jewish spirit and soul meet with Bluegrass and Old Time musical traditions. Their music infuses American Bluegrass and Appalachian sounds with Jewish spirituality and prayers. In The Mama Doni Band, they bring their love for Jewish Tradition and Culture to a multitude of musical genres, creating a rich, spirited, and fun experience for kids and family audiences. In just the past few years their efforts have produced 3 Parents Choice Award winning CD’s, a DVD, 2 Audiobooks, Cookbook, a brand new picture book entitled “Sing-Along Aleph Bet.” Their debut Nefesh Mountain CD was released last year. Doni and Eric tour with both bands throughout the US and UK performing over 100 dates each year.
