Yiddish and African-American Music Meet in a Celebration of Two Cultures
Folksbiene@CUNY - Free Concert Series
From the power of song to overcome persecution to the celebration of life through spiritual music, the African-American and Jewish people have many shared traditions. In the spirit of unity, we honor Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel, Paul Robeson, Benny Goodman, Cab Caloway and countless others who pioneered integration and cultural exchange.
This concert is conceived by Zalmen Mlotek and stars: Elmore James, a veteran of five Broadway productions and numerous opera stages around the world, Tony Perry, a commanding singer-actor, and Lisa Fishman, cabaret singer and stage singer extraordinaire.
