Time Out New York says the Klezmatics are "...the best band in the Klezmer vanguard; on a good night, they can rank among the greatest bands on the planet." For Passover, Makor brings together the incomparable Klezmatics with dynamic singer and Hammond B-3 organ player Amina Claudine Myers and the fine young Orthodox gospel singer Joshua Nelson for a special concert. Freedom Songs celebrates the African-American and Jewish passage from slavery to freedom by weaving together Yiddish and African-American music that shares common themes of liberation and freedom. Presented by Makor at Kaufmann Concert Hall.
