Yiddish Song of the Week Blog

If you haven’t been keeping up with the “Yiddish Song of the Week” blog for the last three years, presented by the Center for Traditional Music and Dance, you need to check it out and catch up. http://yiddishsong.wordpress.com/. Written by Itzik Gottesman, “This initiative is part of a larger effort by the AJFRP (An-sky Jewish Folklore Research Project) to revitalize traditional Yiddish folksinging performance and research on the subject. To that end, this website will emphasize field recordings of traditional Yiddish folksingers from around the world contributed by folklorists, ethnomusicologists, musicians, singers and collectors.”
