Did you know that the roots of the Yiddish language and culture lie in German-speaking lands over 1000 years ago? In this program, two extraordinary musician-scholars take you on a journey through the Western and Eastern epochs of Yiddish and traverse the almost forgotten bridges between German and Yiddish traditional song.

Diana Matut (D) – voice & recorder
Andreas Schmitges (D) – guitar, mandolin, voice
