Dos Goldene Land: Yiddish Song Workshop with Cindy Paley
Join with Cindy Paley to learn and sing Yiddish songs of immigrant pain and joy. Immigrants’ dreams and difficulties in the New World, as well as their nostalgia for the old country, were brought to life in the Yiddish theatre, sparking a “golden” age of creativity for Yiddish literature. Selections will include a music hall number by Boris Tomashefsky, a turn-of-the-century Yiddish penny song, and music by the labor poets. We will conclude with the new This Land is Your Land in Yiddish. Song sheets will be provided in transliteration with English translations.
The event begins 11am PDT (2pm Eastern, 7pm London, 8pm Paris, 9pm Tel Aviv).
About Cindy Paley» Cindy Paley has delighted Jewish communities with her timeless albums and dynamic performances.
