Episode #2184

Balkan-Klezmer Connections

« previous episode | next episode »

Sunday, May 29, 2005

On this New Sounds, hear music from a Southeast European-style supergroup called the Balkan playboys, along with a Klezmer record from Yale Strom and his band Hot Pastrami. When both Balkan and Klezmer music are heard together, it’s a bit easier to perceive the deep connections between the two different styles. Also, there’s music from Boris Kovac & La Danza Apocalypsa Balcanica as well as a tune featuring the famed Kocani Orkestar of Macedonia. Plus, music from guitarists Bill Frisell and Jon Madof from the radical Jewish Music series on the Tzadik label.
