English follows Hebrew
What exactly is Jewish music? Is it music that resembles Klezmer? Piyut in eastern style? Chazanut? Music written by Jews in various periods of history in different places around the world, including here and now? Music inevitably with Jewish content, whether of community life and whether religious? To me the answer is all of the above, with of course a few exceptions of proportionality. For example, I would not be crowning music created by Jews that have no any real connection to Jewish style and/or content as Jewish music, but it is quite possible that I would incorporate such an example in a program that involves a review of what happens to artists of Jewish origin, and I think in most cases one can find a resonance for Jewish Heritage in people that come from Jewish origin who are engaged in traditional style and identity of such a perception, even if it is only on reminisces level. Anyway, personally I am involved in quite a few different types of Jewish content, and follow what Jews have done throughout history in the world around them. For example, my duo “Good Jews” with Vered Forbes, deals with these relations, while we explore relationships of faith in Judaism and its environment, and observing Judaism from the outside and vice versa, according to various contacts and connections. On the other hand I participate in a program that was build around Ladino and another program that deals with a book of songs in early western Yiddish, and so on – even without being a religious person, and as someone who loves the concept of a citizen of the world, I find myself performing quite a few Jewish music centered or related programs, and am interested in the subject, so I feel we can say that this title could certainly describe a significant part of my career.
