One of the last living practitioners of the Yiddish music of Eastern Europe before the war, the extraordinarily charismatic 88 year old vividly conjures up the rich, vibrant life of his community in this collection of songs, many recorded for the first time on this CD. A rare opportunity to experience Yiddish song in its authentic form sung by a master of the genre. The booklet includes an introduction and interview with Bogdanski.
