Yiddishkayt / Jiddischkeit
Bente Kahan presents songs from a broad Judaic repertoire.
Premiered in Oslo, April 1990, with Gjertrud’s Gipsy Orchestra, with the sub-title “A Concert in the Jewish Spirit”.
The CD with the same name was released a year later.
In later years, Bente has called her concerts with Yiddish songs ranging from the sacred to the secular repertoire with the same title, although the repertoire and musical ensembles may change from concert to concert.
Extract from reviews:
