The Hidden Gate – Jewish Music Around the World

The Hidden Gate - Jewish Music Around the World
Boston, USA – The Hidden Gate – Jewish Music Around the World on Rounder Records was released this week.

From Biblical beginnings, Jewish culture and music are found in over 100 countries spanning six continents. While sharing a strong common history, each geographical region has developed its own distinct identity.

The Hidden Gate samples this vast musical heritage, featuring Hebrew, Yiddish, Ladino and Judeo-Arabic songs from Israeli legends (Chava Alberstein, Ofra Haza) and captivating Sephardic singers (Savina Yannatou, Yasmin Levy) to the little heard music of African and Asian Jews, and the klezmer innovators of Eastern Europe and the New World (The Klezmatics, The Klezmer Conservatory Band).
