The pulse of yiddish Tango

Tzadik, 2008

This CD Tangele – The pulse of Yiddish Tango, published by Tzadik in 2008, explores the fascinating links between Yiddish songs and Tango. The composer and arranger Gustavo Beytelmann (pianist of Astor Piazzolla and founder of a famous trio piano bandoneon double bass with Patrice Caratini and Juan José Mosalini) did a Tango version of songs from concentration camps and Jewish ghettos of the Second World War, as well as tunes from the Yiddish theaters of Buenos Aires and New-York from the 1930’s and 1940’s.

17 songs performed by Lloica Czackis, born in Germany from Argentine parents, accompanied by Juan Lucas Aisemberg on the viola and Gustavo Beytelmann on the piano.
