“Life is a circle, we will meet again. Then we know that the moment is not an eternity. The new Mischpoke program is inspired by the cycle of life. The band embarks on a journey into the past and future at the same time and yet has both feet firmly planted in the here and now. Traditional songs in a new guise alternate with original compositions that sound as if they had just been rediscovered. Life-affirming songs are about love, work, family, friends, suffering, hope and of course the incomparable, typically Yiddish combination of melancholy and wit. For 10 years now, Mischpoke has been putting all its experience from 10 years of togetherness on the scales and still discovering something new again and again. The 5 musicians let all their individual experiences from folklore, classical music and jazz flow into the arrangements without forgetting the spirit of klezmorim.
