New Fusions of Yiddish Poetry, Music and Art

Di Farborgene Khalyastre is a small Melbourne-based collective of musicians, artists and scholars dedicated to new fusions of Yiddish poetry, music and art.

Featuring Nathan Wolski (ACJC, Monash University), artist Anita Lester, and composers/musicians Gideon Preiss and Husky Gawenda, they unveil here their first fruits—two stunning works based on the poetry of Aaron Zeitlin (1898-1973). Described by his best friend Isaac Bashevis Singer as “the greatest Yiddish poet,” Zeitlin’s poetry draws deeply from the kabbalistic tradition, and his Holocaust poems are among the most haunting ever written

Sessions include a performance by The Bashevis Singers and a Q&A with the artists.
