Daniel Kahn concocts a mixture of Klezmer, radical Yiddish song, political cabaret and punk-folk, bound together by his unique talents as a songwriter, translator and performer. He tells stories of outrageous incidents, poetically dark, tragically humorous and politically incorrect. Described as ‘the Yiddish Pogues,’ Painted Bird’s music straddles the borders between radical & traditional, lyrical & political, East & West, folk & punk, mama loshon & loshon hora. This is a rare opportunity to experience a great musician who finds inspiration in the poetry and music of Jewish protest.
