More on the Klezmatics and their new album Apikorsim:

Since their emergence 30 years ago, the Klezmatics have raised the bar for Eastern European Jewish music, made aesthetically, politically and musically compelling recordings, inspired future generations, created a large body of work that is enduring and helped to change the face of contemporary Yiddish culture. Accurately described as a Jewish-American roots band, the Klezmatics have led a popular revival of this ages-old, nearly forgotten art form. They have performed in more than 20 countries and released ten albums to worldwide acclaim. On their Grammy-winning 2006 collection Wonder Wheel, the Klezmatics set a dozen previously unsung Woody Guthrie lyrics to music, widening their stylistic base by largely diverging from klezmer. They have also served as the subject of a feature-length documentary film, The Klezmatics: On Holy Ground.

During their three-decade existence the Klezmatics have collaborated with such brilliant artists as violinist Itzhak Perlman, Pulitzer prize-winning playwright Tony Kushner and Israeli vocal icon Chava Alberstein, plus many other prominent artists working within multiple genres. The Klezmatics’ music is rooted in but is not a strictly traditional variety of the klezmer genre. Rather, it is a comfortable hybrid that appeals equally to those with no previous exposure to the music and those already familiar with it. Although tradition is at the core of what they do, since the beginning the Klezmatics have adapted to the artistic sensibilities of a contemporary world. Indeed, the Klezmatics are very much of the modern world.

“We called the new album Apikorsim/Heretics for many reasons: political, philosophical and philological,” says the Klezmatics’ Frank London. “Apikorsim - heretics, rebels, questioners - are people who do not conform to established attitudes and challenge orthodox opinions. And the Klezmatics are decidedly unorthodox.”

Thanks Linda! My show may not reflect it so much these days but back in my college years I was fascinated by Pauline Oliveros and other contemporary composers like Robert Ashley, Alvin Lucier etc. associated with Mills College and the ONCE Group, and later Lovely Music...

Maybe a coincidence. But I heard a second movement melody i there.

Avatar    Sat. 11/26/16 8:15pm Rob W:

Thanks for pointing that out maestroso. I will have to contrast and compare later. If so we owe a shout-out to Carl Orff! (The poems were medieval but his musical work of course is from our old friend, the 20th century.)
  Sat. 11/26/16 8:16pm Barba Yiorgi:

Hi Rob, just tuned in, sounds amazing as usual. Will update you re baglamas etc. Meanwhile, forgot to mention,
saw Urmuli, great Georgian folk group, in Wrocalw Poland a couple of months ago. Heard of 'em?
  Sat. 11/26/16 8:17pm Dean:

Yeah, and I was thinking of the medieval stuff, the recordings most formative in my experience being Rene Clemencic's. I kinda think everybody ought to hear if not own them.

such pretty, pretty, pretty music tonight from the central African continent.

Thanks Linda Lee and everyone! George: Urmuli - curious that you mention them - I have been playing their new collaboration with Polish highlanders and all-time favorites of mine, Trebunie-Tutki - I played a track earlier in the show!
