YID! with Bente Kahan
YID! will be appearing in their last gig for the year with plenty of danceable Yiddish drinking songs and joining them on stage will be Europe’s travelling troubadour of Yiddish culture, internationally acclaimed, Bente Kahan
YID! will be launching three new songs at their gig of December 8th
On Sunday 8th December, Bente Kahan will join Melbourne’s own YID!, the much loved funk/indie/folk/free jazz/spoken/world/Balkan/swing/ethnic/Klezmer/avant garde/big band group of 22 of Melbourne’s finest musicians that burst onto the world stage just two years ago. Still making it up as they go, the band is constantly adding to its repertoire of Yiddish drinking songs and at this concert – their last for 2019 – they will be launching three new songs, two of which will be sung by the Zygier sisters. You’ll hear beautiful harmonies, pounding grooves, frenetic solos and untamed soundscapes, all translated into supertitles, to make them accessible to everyone, Yiddish speaker, or not.
