Its the Jewish new year and that provides an opportunity to listen to some songs that seem germane to current struggles and their history. We'll feature songs that come out of the rising discontents of Israeli young people as reflected in the massive street protests for social justice that have been occurring there. And we'll listen to brand new recordings by outstanding artists who build upon klezmer and other song traditions to make contemporary meanings: the Klezmatics, observing their 25th anniversary as a band, and Daniel Kan and the Painted Bird. Songs of justice, struggle and joy--shana tova!
