Hosted by Jean-Gabriel Davis
The MEDEM Center along with the CLEJ just edited a songbook in Yiddish and in French called Mir Zingen. Songs from the BUND, from worker’s fights, folk songs, songs of brotherhood… are all in this songbook.
On this occasion, Jean-Gabriel Davis, who hosts a monthly radio show in French dedicated to Yiddish culture, presents a special broadcast on this songbook. We will hear songs from this book, sang by Chava Alberstein, the Yeux Noirs, Klunk, the Barry Sisters, Cartouche…
Jean-Gabriel Davis is a musician, singer (especially with the band Klunk), archivist at the EIJM , host of radio programs, and passionate of Yiddish. In 2012, he created and hosted a radio broadcast called “Latkes un Fidlers”, dedicated to klezmer music, Yiddish songs, and everything close to that. That show was broadcasted on a web radio, Radio XP, the radio of the Gare Expérimentale, a Paris non lucrative organisation of alternative and underground cuilture.
