chants traditionnels yiddish et roms, eva & milena

memories from tour, march 2013

In March of 2013, I traveled to Paris, where Miléna Kartowski and I assembled a program of Yiddish and Romani Songs, mostly a cappella, which we then performed in a week of wonderful gatherings/performances that Miléna organized, with the collaboration and participation of a number of inspiring and committed Jewish and Romani organizations in France and Belgium. The work was inspiring and meaningful, and planted many seeds for future work.
