Yup. Jewryhthmics is a band dedicated to none other than Yiddish disco! En plus, Regina Spektor‘s version of Eli Eli written by Hannah Senesz, Gypsophilia from Halifax, a wee bit of Yemen Blues, Rotfront from Ukraine/Berlin, The Temptations (!), Sway Machinery, Watcha Clan from Marseilles, OPA! from St-Petersburg, Basya Schechter sings the poetry of Abraham Joshua Heschel, Leo Fuld old-timer and crooner extraordinaire, more from Halifax with Ben Caplan and the Casual Smokers, and the extremely beautiful Montreal duo Araora sing about your soul.
If it’s Jewish and it’s music…it might be on this show.
