« "Yiddish Art Songs" rerelease on Omega | Main | First round Klezmershack "klezcontacts" update completed »

German Record Critics award to Solomon & Socalled

The highly prestigious annual is normaly something for the creme de la creme of classical music stars. In a surprising move Piranha's next generation of Klezmer won it for last year's release HIPHOPKHASENE. "This work of great chutzpah and genius" (DJ Max Reinhardt) brings together a remarkable cast of musicians, including David Krakauer, Frank London, Michael Albert and Smadj, turning an authentic Eastern European Jewish wedding, the khasene, into a hiphop extravaganza complete with old-school Yiddish freestylin' on the mike.

Congrats to Sophie and Josh and the rest of the crew!
