Looking to lift your spirit in song and the joys of Jewish culture? Award-winning performer Avi Hoffman has teamed up with world-renowned Klezmer scholar Aaron Kula and his Klezmer Company Jazz Orchestra to create Yiddish Tangos, fusing Yiddish melodies with tango rhythms, producing a unique and sensuous sound embracing two distinct cultures. During World War II, tango was the rave on both sides of the Atlantic, and Jewish composers added their voices to this popular genre. Combined withAvi Hoffman’s tales of Jewish culture, Klezmer scholar Aaron Kula has arranged Yiddish and Klezmer tunes to tango rhythms. This program, which also features live dancers, brings passion to Yiddish music and appeals to audiences of all ages. “Yiddish Tangos” has been featured at major festivals around the world.
