Yiddish in three

This title unhides new concept of yiddish songs – more dynamic and more authentic because accordion and clarinet are instruments related to jewish songs. These are instruments of klezmers, fiddlers playing in pubs, courts and streets. It supplies song with unforgiven magic of music for rich and poor.In show, the magic of yiddish language rises in traditional songs, composed in late 19th century. Song tells us about human joy and tribulation – with irony, fun, but also nostalgic. Choose of song reflects past but also present of everyday life.
