info 

Yiddish poetry accompanied by new written music, composed and performed by swedish/danish duo Ida & Louise. The project is based on work by five women yiddish writers; Anna Margolin, Celia Dropkin, Malka Heifetz Tussman, Rokhl Korn and Kadya Molodovsky - all born in Eastern Europe towards the end of the 19th century and mostly active before the second World War – a time of flowering for Yiddish culture. Words and music are carefully woven together with the aim of creating a dense and deep harmony between the music, the expression and the poetry. The songs are presented in Yiddish and English, covering themes like emancipation, longing and forbidden desires. In Shtoltse lider the duo revives these almost forgotten poems and creates a poetic musical universe flavoured with klezmer, tango, art music, jazz and 1920´s cabaret.
