Yoshie Fruchter’s PITOM
“Yoshie combines influences from Frank Zappa, Sonic Youth and Masada into a rocking
band performing catchy, hooky compositions that both pay tribute to and challenge
the Jewish tradition…Pitom is a hard-edged new addition to the legacy of Radical
Jewish Culture” —John Zorn
Benjy Fox Rosen’s MINUTN FUN BITOKHN
Benjy has toured internationally performing throughout the United States and Europe.
Benjy was a recipient of the Bronfman Fellowship for Emerging Jewish Student Artists
in 2007, for “Minutn fun Bitokhn” his suite melding Yiddish songs with improvised
and composed music. And he even sings too. Benjy has studied voice and Yiddish song
with Lorin Sklamberg, of the Klezmatics, and is immersing himself in Yiddish, mostly
by leaving incomprehensible messages on his Grandmother’s voicemail.
