Eastern European Roots

There's music by the Klezmatics on this installment of New Sounds. These “possessed Jews with horns” have been making their crazy, spiritual, reflective, and danceable Yiddish party music since the late 1980’s. Tonight, hear tunes from their recent record, “Rise Up!”, a somewhat moody opus with lots of traditional sources, which at times, feels like eavesdropping on religious services. Selections by Les Yeux Noirs and Tarafs de Haidouks round out this program of music with Eastern European roots.
