Yiddish Soul AND Yiddish Soul Concert | Chicago Reader

Yiddish Soul AND Yiddish Soul Concert

A rousing double bill of Belgian videos that document Europe's Yiddish music revival. Yiddish Soul (2005, 53 min.) explores the songs' attraction for both Jews and non-Jews seeking to reclaim a culture destroyed by Hitler. The Italian ensemble KlezRoym introduces some lyrical innovations, but most of the artists, like the celebrated Karsten Troyke of Germany, strive to interpret the wide repertoire as faithfully as possible. The companion piece Yiddish Soul Concert (2005, 43 min.) features crowd-pleasing performances from some of the musicians interviewed in the other video, including chanteuse Myriam Fuks, a firecracker with a flair for cabaret. Turi Finocchiaro and Nathalie Rossetti directed both videos. In various languages with subtitles.
