Shane Solow has put together a webpage as part of “Lost Trails” with some sound clips of field recordings done in Romania of klezmer music. He recorded musicians in northern Romania that play “archaic melodies” that are a prototype for Klezmer music. They learned the melodies from Jewish musicians who lived in this region before the second world war. They are some of the last performers who know this tradition in that area. The musicians on the CD are:
Constantin Lupu, violin
Constantin Negel, cobza
Anton Mitica Stefan, drum
The music is available for sale.
