In this concert, the members of Veretski Pass demonstrate how they use archival material, and spin melodies, some hundred of years old into new arrangements and compositions. In the tradition of folk musicians all over the world, these musicians put their own recognizable mark on music from the Jewish Pale of settlement and beyond. In a true collage of Carpathian, Jewish, Rumanian and Ottoman styles, typical suites contain dances from Moldavia and Bessarabia; Jewish melodies from Poland and Rumania; Hutzul wedding music from Carpathian-Ruthenia; and haunting Rebetic aires from Smyrna, seamlessly integrated with original compositions.
