Description

In his quest to trace the roots of klezmer, the traditional instrumental music of Yiddish-speaking Jews, author Henry Sapoznik tells a fascinating story of survival against all odds, of a musical legacy so potent it can still be heard. This expanded second edition also includes a CD of klezmer music from Dave Tarras, Andy Statman, Naftule Brandwein, The Klezmatics, and others.
