Description

With POSSESSED, the first of their four albums to consist primarily of original compositions, the KLEZMATICS have knocked down the walls that are supposed to separate klezmer music from jazz, ska and funk. And while some of the lyrics are traditional, the rest are by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, TONY KUSHNER (Undoing World), and Yiddish underground legend, MICHAEL WEX (Mizmor Shir le-Hanef, the first Yiddish-language reefer song)...And who says Yiddish is dead? There are vocals in English and Hebrew, as well as Yiddish, and the KLEZMATICS music for Tony Kushners Dybbuk is presented here for the first time on CD. The KLEZMATICS commitment to using contemporary musical genres and arrangements to make East - European Jewish culture accessible to a general audience reaches a new peak with POSSESSED.
