World Wednesdays: Klezmer

I’m hap­py (and some­what daunt­ed) to announce that the pre­mière episode of World Wednes­days, a new week­ly one-hour show on Radio Riel, will be tomor­row, Jan­u­ary 7, 2009, at 6 pm SLT in Wyre. The show will be broad­cast on http://music2.radioriel.org. Please join us or lis­ten as you are able. A pro­gram sched­ule will be pub­li­cized on the Radio Riel cal­en­dar.

For this first show, I will be play­ing a vari­ety of Klezmer and Klezmer-inspired musi­cians. Klezmer is a high­ly var­ied musi­cal tra­di­tion of Ashke­naz­ic Judaism that began in 15th-cen­tu­ry east­ern Europe. It includes both instru­men­tal and vocal music, the lat­ter tra­di­tion­al­ly sung in Yid­dish.
