Have you ever heard the Four Questions chanted in Yiddish or Ladino? Or Chad Gadya, Echad Mi Yodea, Adir Hu? These are the traditional songs of Pesach, sung in Hebrew around the Seder table each and every year to commemorate the Exodus from slavery in Egypt. Mark Levy has been leading Seders and singing these Yiddish and Ladino table songs for 30 years, and now has put together a program for all to hear, remember, and enjoy.
MARK LEVY has performed and taught in the San Francisco Bay Area for 30 years at temples, JCC's, Lehrhaus Judaica, Workmen's Circle and other Jewish groups. He has appeared throughout the country, in Europe and Israel and is a singer and lecturer who specializes in older Judaic folk music in Yiddish, Hebrew, and Ladino, Klezmer history and theory, and Jewish music in general. He has released a fourth album of Jewish music entitled Bin Ikh Mir A Shnayderl: Yiddish Work Songs, in commemorations of the 100th birthday of Workmen's Circle, a fraternal order of Jewish workers.
