An evening of online musical performances & discussion
Featuring: Brivele, Geoff Berner, Ira Temple
In these times of growing white supremacy, police brutality, and neo-fascism, we need music that rises to the occasion. This summer in particular, we have seen a powerful uprising to these injustices, led by Black, Brown and Indigenous communities. Accordions, violins, clarinets and voices can be some of the most dangerous tools at our disposal to combat injustice. Klezmer has a long tradition of songs that cried out for workers rights, against police brutality, and for a world free from fascism. Today, there is a growing movement of klezmer musicians drawing on that tradition, dusting off the beautiful, tragic, and celebratory songs of old, and re-imagining them for modern times. Come hear from some of the best of them!
This special online event will feature live musical performances, discussion, and a QnA with the audience. All are welcome to attend!
