A radio broadcast of Radio Judaica Lyon hosted by Edmond Ghrenassia
KLEZMER ATTITUDE – 20th AUGUST 2007 – RADIO JUDAICA LYON (RJL) (94.5)
This week, Edmond Ghrenassia makes us go back to the roots with several traditional klezmer tunes from Transylvania, a region of Romania who housed many Jewish communities, largely destroyed during the second world war. The band Muzsikás, a klezmer ensemble mainly composed of string instruments (violin, buzuki, doublebass, guitar…), worked hard on its CD Máramaros – The Lost Jewish Music Of Transylvania to make relive this music. We will hear a chassidic dance (Khosid dance) and a wedding song perfoormed by this Hungarian band, as well as music from the bands Budowitz, Budapest Klezmer Band, Brave Old World…
Formed to be engeneer, and teacher in University, Edmond Ghrenassia hosts since 2005 the show Klezmer Attitude on Radio Judaïca Lyon, program created to favor the diffusion of Jewish music. In 2009, he creates the International Festival of Jewish Music of Lyon which takes place in the Espace Hillel, where he programmed over 50 concerts. Amateur musician, he plays in several klezmer bands since 2003 and recorded several CD’s..
