Hidden Sides of Jewish Music : Leibu Levin

A radio program hosted by Hélène Engel

LES FACES CACHÉES DE LA MUSIQUE JUIVE – 2014 – RADIO SHALOM Montréal (1650 AM)

 

Hélène Engel presents two CDs performed by singer Ruth Levin to compositions by her father Leibu Levin, a Romanian-born Jew, singer, composer and narrator of Yiddish literature. The 2013 CD Geheyme Gest, released by Ruth Levin, features a dramatic musical style found in Yiddish but also Russian and Austro-Hungarian song. The lyrics are inspired by 20th century Yiddish poetry. The second album is an anthology album in which Leibu Levin and his daughter Ruth sing together.
