Veretski Pass with Joel Rubin - Polyn, A Gilgul
Translated as Poland, A Metamorphosis, this CD contains a collection of the obereks, kujawiaks, krakowiaks and polkas of Poland, previously unknown Hasidic tunes, country dances, contemporary and 19th century ethnographic collections as well as repertoire from field research of the musicians and their colleagues, and of course, original compositions. Drawing on these sources, Veretski Pass and Joel Rubin have re-imagined, re-composed and re-arranged old urban and rural music to enrich the genre currently known as klezmer music. This recording is the meeting of Jewish and Polish music - a missing link of the klezmer revival.
