While moving to the Klezmer beat, the experience will be enriched by the music of the Roma and Balkan people in their traditional lands. An exclusive adventure aboard the chartered Viking Neptune cruise ship, the project will be energized by a team of outstanding experts and first-rank Klezmer musicians, including Michael Alpert, Cookie Segelstein, Joshua Horowitz, Michael Winograd, Richie Barshay, Susan Watts, Bob Cohen, Eric Stein, Josh (SoCalled) Dolgin, venerable Jewish music archivist Arkady Gendler of Zaporozhye, and McGill Jewish Studies Professor Eugene Orenstein.

For passengers with roots in the region, the project will again be a uniquely convenient opportunity to search out and visit ancestral communities.

For more information and links to photos and videos from the Dnieper, consult the website www.klezmercruise.ca. Early bookings will enjoy a discount until November 15, 2008.
