Forgotten yiddish songs

Unpublished Jewish songs, recalled by Sara Bialas and transferred from her memory into music by Karsten Troyke. In this way they both keep a piece of Jewish culture from oblivion. In the booklet, you can follow Sara's life story on the basis of the songs. The songs are arranged according to Sara's recollection of the sound of the songs from her early days. They are filled with the melancholy of Polish-Russian soul together with some Klezmer elements, performed with a big shot of staginess.

Special guest: Bettina Wegner.
