'MAZL & BROKHE': YIDDISH SONG
Marianna Moralis (vocals), Lulu Austin (violin), David Mowat (trumpet), Knud Stüwe (guitar) and Simon Leach (percussion) with:
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 Second Avenue in swinging New York. Impassioned female vocals lead the party, against a joyous backing of violin, trumpet, guitar and percussion.
'SOUND IS RESISTANCE' AT EDINBURGH FRINGE
The Chai For All Ensemble will be performing at Venue 40 in August 2022.
During their tour of Palestine in 2018, the Chai For All Ensemble heard a story about the wheat variety 'Abu Samra', which Zaid Hilal and Hind Hilal turned into a lovely song, performed during our UK tour of Our Homeland Lives in Us: Longing, Belonging & Palestine. In April 2019 Chai For All Ensemble members Katie Stevens, David Mowat and Michael Loader, with Peter Churchill of the Bonfire Radicals, returned to listen to many more Palestinian stories, which will be used to inspire our new ensemble show Sound is Resistance: Stories of Palestine in Music and Song.
