Mazl & Brokhe: Yiddish song

 —  —

El Rincon, 298 North Street, Bristol BS3 1JU

Exciting and entertaining, Chai For All plays jazz-tinged klezmer, Old World Yiddish folk and New World Yiddish theatre songs, on a magnificent musical journey from the haunted Central and Eastern European shtetls, through the dimly-lit basement bars of tango-crazed Buenos Aires, to the vibrant neighbourhoods of swinging New York. Impassioned female vocals lead the party, against a joyous backing of violin, trumpet, guitar and percussion.

Lineup: Marianna Moralis (Tram Thirty-Three) - vocals, Lulu Austin (Hazir Ensemble) - violin, David Mowat (Bristol European Jazz Ensemble) - trumpet, Knud Stüwe (Eastern Strings) - guitar, Simon Leach (Hazir Ensemble) - percussion
