A radio broadcast of Radio Judaica Lyon hosted by Edmond Ghrenassia
KLEZMER ATTITUDE – MONDAY 23rd JULY 2007, RADIO JUDAICA LYON (RJL) (94.5)
This week, Edmond Ghrenassia presents a program dedicated to the doina. The doina is a common style in klezmer music, where the musician does a a very free and expressive performance. The doina often precedes a 3 step rhythmed style, but still slow, the hora, but it can also precede faster styles like the freylech or the bulgar.
We will hear tunes played by Jacob Hoffman, Yoska Nemeth, Cheikh Raymond, Ot Azoj Klezmer Band…
