"This recording developed over a period of several years, during which Di Naye Kapelye have continued scrambling around East Europe looking for conrtexts and traces of Jewish music, a good half century after the Holocaust nearly destroyed Europe's Jewish population and culture.

There are still Jewish communities in East Europe and in the memories of this aging population lives a sense of Jewish culture - Yiddishkeit - that developed strong local expressions of faith and music. Furthermore, the memory of Jewish culture is often maintained by non-Jews, those who choose to cherish the legacy of neighbors lost but not forgotten.

Whether live or on recording, Di Naye Kapelye blow me away. This is roots klezmer in the best way, played in the style that would have had folks dancing madly all night a hundred years ago, just as it compels us to do the same, today.... It is hard to imagine anyone else playing such a diversity of music, not only authentically, but with such heart and skill.... This is a band that makes klezmer sexier than blues or jazz."
