French violonist and singer Eleonore Biezunski has been exploring the Yiddish traditions of the old and new world for quite some time now – both as a musician and as a archivist for YIVO. For this new project, she will be joined by Lauren Brody (vocals, accordion).
Lauren Brody, a founding member of both Kapelye and Mikveh, is one of the world’s foremost experts in traditional Bulgarian music, and her singing and accordion-playing in Yiddish performances is legendary. She travels the world as a bearer of Yiddish musical tradition.
Together they will explore a repertoire of women’s Yiddish folksongs, orally transmitted to them or preserved with great care and love by folklorists such as Ruth Rubin
