Klezmer : music and community in twentieth-century Jewish Philadelphia by Hankus Netsky( )

16 editions published between 2004 and 2017 in English and held by 996 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Klezmer" presents a lively and detailed overview of the folk musical tradition as practiced in Philadelphia's twentieth-century Jewish community. Through interviews, archival research, and recordings, Hankus Netsky constructs an ethnographic portrait of Philadelphia's Jewish musicians, the environment they worked in, and the repertoire they performed at local Jewish lifestyle and communal celebrations. Netsky defines what klezmer music is, how it helped define Jewish immigrant culture in Philadelphia, and how its current revival has changed klezmer's meaning historically. "Klezmer" also addresses the place of musicians and celebratory music in Jewish society, the nature of klezmer culture, the tensions between sacred and secular in Jewish music, and the development of Philadelphia's distinctive "Russian Sher" medley, a unique and masterfully crafted composition. Including a significant amount of musical transcriptions, "Klezmer" chronicles this special musical genre from its heyday in the immigrant era, through the mid-century period of its decline through its revitalization from the 1980s to today

"When filmmaker Marlene Booth became a working mother, she searched for families for whom working outside the home while raising children was a way of life. She found three families--one Mexican-American, one Polish-American, and one African-American--who had labored as migrant workers, sharecroppers, waitresses, nurse's aides, secretaries, and teachers. The Double Burden celebrates these women as they tell for the first time their stories of love, labor, sacrifice, and tremendous pride."--Container

A jumpin' night in the Garden of Eden by Michal Goldman( Visual )

3 editions published between 1989 and 2022 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For nearly a thousand years, klezmer music had been part of the celebration of Jewish life in Eastern Europe. Immigrants brought it to America, where it intersected with the Yiddish theatre and jazz. Yet klezmer was virtually extinct by the 1970s when some young musicians went looking for their cultural origins in the vast American musical landscape. Tracking two groups of brilliant young musicians, Kapelye and the Klezmer Conservatory Band, and containing rare footage of the elder immigrant musicians they learned from, "A JUMPIN' NIGHT IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN" is the first film to document the klezmer revival. Originally released in 1987 and re-released in 2021, it tells the story of 2nd and 3rd generation immigrants restoring their cultural legacy: a very American story
