Soulfarm (formerly Inasense) has just returned from the Jewish Cultural Festival in Berlin, where the New York desert rockers took an extended Thanksgiving Weekend detour from their U.S. tour supporting their Phoenix Presents debut, Live at The Wetlands, to become the only American band represented among the many from around the world which participated in the annual gathering.

During its four-night German run, Soulfarm brought its guitar-based Middle Eastern groove to capacity crowds ranging from 200 at the Quasimodo Bar to 1,500 at the Culture House of Berlin.

Aside from its own headlining performances, at three of the Festival shows the members of Soulfarm also sat in with Israeli folk-rock star David Broza. Soulfarm leader C Lanzbom, whose impassioned guitar playing is similar in spirit, is planning to return the favor and sit in with Broza back here in New York City, when he arrives to play his annual Christmas Eve concert at Town Hall. Coincidentally, Soulfarm played Town Hall the night they departed for Berlin, as part of the annual Hebron Benefit.
