Yiddish Music & Poetry with a Latin Beat
One of the many ways Yiddish is unique is in its cheeky borrowing from other cultures and creating something entirely new.
We parochially think of Yiddish flowering in Eastern Europe and North America, but did you know an impressive and enduring Yiddish cultural riches is rooted in South America? אַװדאַי Avade! ¡Claro está!
The renowned LA-based KlezmerJuice owes its origins to the Argentinian klezmer scene. The musical fusion of Yiddish and Latin sensibilities will be especially evident in the performance on Sept. 21.
And the Yiddish poetry you’ll hear (with English translation) is drawn from a vast legacy of modern Argentinian and Brazilian Yiddish literature.
