” … tunes that incorporate a Yemeni melody, a Greek waltz, Ladino ballads … flamenco guitar, Arabic drums and straight ahead Yiddish folk ballads. The arrangements are provocative, particularly on a reworked version of “Maoz Tsur”, a traditional Hanukkah song, but can also be amusing, such as on “Kvetshing” (Yiddish for complaining), in which a few voices are heard moaning and groaning uninterruptedly for nearly a minute. How can you not love a song called “The Shlump”? This latest disc shows off the group’s talents marvelously and earns them an important place in the growing ranks of new-generation klezmorim who are preserving, but also extending, Jewish music into the next century.” (ES)
