Internationally acclaimed musicians from New York and France, Jake Shulman-Ment and Eleonore Weill share an exceptionally expressive and intimate understanding of klezmer and Yiddish folk song. In this program, they perform old songs of political and social resistance, wandering, and love, instrumental dances and improvisations, and spiritual melodies. Combining music they have played since childhood with material they have collected along their many roads through Europe and North America, as well as original compositions, they explore the boundaries of Yiddish music with creative repertoire, instrumentation, and interpretation.
