The Gypsy-Klezmer musical connection has been accepted as fact since the early days of the “Klezmer Revival,” giving rise to sometimes bizarre musical incarnations. Josh looks at the historical connections from past centuries as well as modern convulsions of the Gypsy-Jewish relationship of the past 33 years with a self-critical examination of the cyclical mythical beast that continues to both charm and elude us, applying the Gypsy saying, “there are false truths and honest lies” to the relationship between Gypsy and Jewish music.
