Gezang un kamf: Radical Yiddish Repertoire Song Workshop: These are anarchist ballads, Bundist anthems, socialist marches, rebel romances, strike songs, street battle blues, industrial laments, and protest chants. Since the dawn of the modern age, Yiddish songs of social and political struggle have borne witness to injustice and shone a light through the darkness. Using Latin transliteration and translation, participants will learn to sing this powerful repertoire, connecting these time-worn struggles to our world today. Sometimes the future we seek is buried in the past.
