Yale Strom and Hot Pstromi, NYC, Dec 11

A Joyous Chanukah Celebration
With Music and Stories from a Never-Vanquished World!

In 1981, Yale Strom gave up his plans for law school, bought a one-way ticket to the Eastern Bloc and spent a year searching for klezmer music among the vibrant and resilient Jewish communities that were virtually unknown in the West. As the world's leading ethnographer-artist of klezmer music, Yale Strom has since traveled to Eastern Europe over 65 times. But before all the books, the CD's and the films, there was that very first, life-affirming trip...
