Socalled Sings Di Frosh

Socalled (Josh Dolgin), “the mad wizard of Yiddish hip-hop,” goes back to his roots in this ground-breaking program. Featuring accompaniment by the Bachanalia Chamber Players, the program presents songs from the Yiddish theatre, Hasidic melodies, klezmer, folksong, songs from the Holocaust and from Israel, and even some original numbers.

The program is funny, sad, beautiful, and dark, with a diverse range of styles, colors, keys, modes, and moods. The Yiddish revival is over and it’s the Yiddish era again, so let’s dig deep and let’s celebrate and explore the riches of this extraordinary culture.
