 Night Songs from a Neighboring Village
 
Concert & CD Release Party
 
Venue: ( Center for Jewish History)
Center for Jewish History
Producer: ( Center for Jewish History, YIVO Institute and Center for Traditional Music and Dance)
Center for Jewish History, YIVO Institute and Center for Traditional Music and Dance
City: New York

Additional Notes:
Night Songs from a Neighboring Village is a concert program pairing two musical traditions - East European Jewish and Ukrainian - that have existed side by side and nourished each other for centuries. Master musicians Michael Alpert and Julian Kytasty draw on Ukrainian folk and liturgical song, and the art of the bandura (Ukrainian lute-harp), as well as three Jewish musical genres that reached their greatest European flowering in Ukraine: klezmer music, Yiddish folk song and the music of the Hasidic world. Night Songs from a Neighboring Village includes performance, personal storytelling and commentary, and has been featured at major concert venues in Los Angeles, Jerusalem, Berlin, Krakow and elsewhere throughout the US and Europe.

Alpert and Kytasty add: “We are musicians/composers from Jewish and Ukrainian communities in North America for whom the affirmation and development of our musical heritages is a life's work. Our collaboration explores the deep historical and cultural links between our two peoples, who arrived on North American shores in the same great waves of immigration from the same ancestral territory. Devoted to our own musical legacies, we have been inspired to explore the commonalities that connect us as well as the differences that have divided us.”
