Cookie Segelstein, founder and director of the Klezmer group Veretski Pass, will explore the many elements that contribute to the Jewish style of playing by examining characteristics of Ashkenazi Jewish culture: the humor, the physical gestures associated with Jewish expression, and the evocative sound of spoken Yiddish. Using historical recordings, interviews, and her own virtuoso playing, she will explore this familiar but unexplainable sound.

Co-presented by the 27th Jewish Music Festival and KlezCalifornia
