Dear friends,

 

A Freilekhn Christmas & Merry Hanouka, Shana Tova, Happy New Year, etc.!

 

1. Some news

Time for some news before we move from 19 to 20:

 

The autumn was relatively quiet for me, with a Germany tour for Waxband (quite something!) and some modest gigs with my other projects in France.

 

I am now taking advantage of the peaceful winter to stay home and prepare upcoming projects (in the comfort of my little cosy flat in the Anjou countryside).

 

A few new projects are in the making and will be ready in the spring, mainly:

  • An experimental duo under the provisional name of “Electro Ber et Govski” with Pierre-Alexis Lavergne and his electric guitar, keyboards and pop/rock arrangements…,

  • The recording of the “Waxband Project” album (I am currently trying to secure funding),

  • And the 5th annual Klezmer Rendez-Vous in Normandy.

By the way, registration for the Klezmer Rendez-Vous workshops (music, song and dance) is now open!

Please find the complete programme, faculty members and fees on these links:

2. Doï Klezmorim

I am also delighted to announce the birth of “Doï Klezmorim”, my duo with my long-standing colleague Mihai Trestian, the cimbalom virtuoso. Here’s our beautiful poster – an etching made by Chloé Mayoux:
