This week marks the holiest week in the Jewish calendar, the week between Rosh Hashanah (the celebration of the New Year) and Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement, a day of fasting and repentance).

And so tonight’s Monday Night World Music brings you the music of my people — a set of Jewish music, Israeli pop, and a few excursions to the lands of my ancestors, Eastern Europe and Morocco.

You’ll hear klezmer (like the Klezmatics, from whom I borrowed the title of this post), modern interpretations of Sephardic music (including Yasmin Levy and Deleon), Israeli pop legends like Teapacks and Ofra Haza, and much more — even a few unexpected versions of traditional songs from the High Holidays.

So come hang out and shep naches with us, tonight from 6–8:30PM SLT. You can join me (Carter) in world at Madhu’s Café Indien, or listen in on Radio Riel’s main stream. Hope to see you there!
