A new collaboration, Goyfriend, between celebrated Latvian singer Sasha Lurje and Brooklyn-based klezmer band Litvakus, offers a unique window into the dialogue between Jewish, Slavic and Baltic cultures. This diverse project explores the image of the Jews and their representations in the folk culture of their neighbors over 600 years of common history.
