Klezmer Attitude: the doina

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...

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.
