Rich East European Jewish and Ukrainian musical traditions come together with Michael Alpert, a leading Yiddishist and pioneer of the klezmer revival, and Julian Kytasty, a premier bandura (lute-harp) player. Night Songs from a Neighboring Village pairs traditions that have existed side by side and interacted for centuries, mirroring the complex relationship between the two peoples. From lyrical love ballads and songs of flirtation to tales of marital mayhem and epics of separation from home and hearth wrought by conscription and war, this music portrays the many facets of life portrayed in the Jewish and non-Jewish song cultures of Ukraine.
