Charity Gala & Opening Concert
In recent years he has been a guest of the Jewish Week as an artist – played for example with the Banda Comunale or with Marina Frenk and Daniel Kahn as The Disorientelists on the stage of the Societaetstheater.
For our opening concert, Yuriy Gurzhy takes us on a search for a Ukrainian-Jewish musical world. With the help of his stage colleagues, he presents his finds in a modern sound – Hasidic niggunim meet hip-hop, Ukrainian klezmer melodies are arranged as reggae, dub or cumbia, there is singing in Ukrainian, Yiddish and English – an eclectic soundtrack to the search for identity.
“Jewish music only existed at my grandpa’s – I thought”.
