$25; $20 Discounted

The outsized sensuous sounds of the Sephardic tradition meet their match in the raucous balladeer-ing of Eastern Europe.

Daniel Kahn and the Painted Bird employ an inimitable mixture of radical Yiddish song, punk sensibility and re-worked klezmer melodies. Their latest spirited reverie, Bad Old Songs, takes on Leonard Cohen, Franz Josef Degenhardt, and the poetry of Heinrich Heine.Daniel Kahn and the Painted Bird

The double-bill opens with the premiere of an “unplugged” version of Sarah Aroeste’s newest project, Gracia, which fuses Ladino (Judeo-Spanish) music with rock, pop, jazz and funk.

Co-sponsors: American Sephardi Federation and Yiddish of Greater Washington
