THE JACQUES KAPOTA COLLECTION

The essentials of Jewish music

The Kapota collection gathers many recordings of Jewish music, and the great artists of Israeli music or liturgical music, such as Yaffa Yarkoni, Shuly Nathan, Yossele Rosenblatt or Jan Peerce.

 

One can also find more uncommon documents, 33 RPM discs of Gypsy music (Yoska Nemeth) – or the humoristic song “La danse du Schmok” by French comedian Popeck.
