Gephilte: A SoCalled Experiment in Yiddish Funk

Presented by Axé Worldfest

SoCalled (Josh Dolgin), “the mad wizard of Yiddish Hip-Hop”, goes back to his roots on this ground-breaking, heartbreaking program, SoCalled sings Yiddish.

The program presents songs from the Yiddish Theatre, Hassidic melodies, Klezmer, folksong, songs from the Holocaust, from Israel, and even some original new songs. Through song, so much history and culture can be exposed and given new life. The program is funny, sad, beautiful, and dark with a diverse range of styles, colours, keys, modes and moods. The Yiddish revival is over, it’s the Yiddish era again; so let’s dig deep, let’s celebrate and explore the riches of this extraordinary culture.
