(PM me on Facebook to secure a place)
The Hasidic World of Music
The music of Hasidic Jews is built upon a fascinating array of both Jewish and non-Jewish musical gestures. In this multi-media presentation, focusing on the area in and around Uman, Ukraine, this lecture will unearth hidden Kabbalistic musical symbolisms and examine connections between Ottoman, Napoleonic, and Russian military bands, and examine the Hasidic proclivity for assimilating neighboring musical cultures. The presentation will feature music examples, film clips, fun facts, insightful music analyses, and anecdotes about the styles of the different Hasidic dynasties as we continually ask, “What is Jewish in this music?”
