Alternate Paths: Klezmer!

Klezmer is traditional Jewish folk music.  In the course of one performance, it can make you laugh, cry, dance and wonder how the world came to be.

These two videos are of  brilliant flutist Adrianne Greenbaum, playing both wooden and silver flutes.  The first is “Rebecca’s Hora”, written by Adrianne for her daughter and recorded in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia.  The second is full of flutey pyrotechnics!
