Yale Strom & Hot Pstromi, Brooklyn, NY, May 14

Sunday, May 14th, 2pm, Brooklyn Public Library, Grand Army Plaza:

Yale Strom & Hot Pstromi live at the Brooklyn Public Library. A screening of Yale Strom's new documentary film "Man From Munkacs: Gypsy Klezmer", followed by a concert featuring hypenate Strom and his klezmer supergroup.

This Event is Free to the Public!

In Munkacs, Ukraine, Rom Gyula Golambosi singlehandedly kept klezmer alive... until the birth of the first male Jewish child after the Holocaust, to whom he bequeathed the music... an extraordinary story of the connection between the Jews and the Rom, and how one ethnic group kept alive another's traditions until they could be returned.
