Presented by CJH (Center for Jewish History) and Center for Traditional Music and Dance
10 October 2011, New York
Join klezmer violinist Jake Shulman-Ment on a multi-media musical travelogue of his year as a Fulbright Scholar exploring the deep roots that connect Romanian music and klezmer music. Based in the city of Botosani, in Romanian Moldavia, Shulman-Ment conducted field research with elderly Roma (Gypsy) musicians, organized and performed in a 10-city musical tour of old Romanian synagogues, and even played for the U.S. Ambassador as a member of the regional folk orchestra. After the lecture, please join us in the Great Hall for a Tantshoyz Yiddish Dance Party featuring rare Romanian-Jewish repertoire and a reception.
