Learn Nigunim, with Renna Khuner-Haber ONLINE


Sun Nov 15 2020


11:00 am - 12:45 pm



In this singing workshop, Renna Khuner-Haber will teach nigunim (niGUNim, in the Ashkenazi pronuncation), a form of Jewish religious song or tune sung by groups. It is vocal music, often with repetitive sounds such as “Bim-Bim-Bam”, “Lai-Lai-Lai”, “Yai-Yai-Yai” or “Ai-Ai-Ai” instead of formal lyrics.

KlezCalifornia is presenting workshops this year free of charge as a community service during the COVID-19 pandemic. Donations of $25 (or whatever you can afford) are greatly appreciated to enable us to continue our mission to connect you with Yiddish culture and to assist artists who have lost performance income.

This workshop is made possible in part by a grant from the Alliance for California Traditional Arts, in partnership with the Walter and Elise Haas Fund, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, and the Surdna Foundation. We rely on donations from participants to provide the rest of the needed funding.
