Something really cool happened this morning. We got an email on behalf of a Japanese journalists who is writing about klezmer music. He will actually be at some of the BJMF events. It turns out, there is a growing curiosity about klezmer music in Japan. Best of all, maybe my son will be able to translate the article when it comes out (May, tentatively) for his college Japanese course. Isn't it amazing how music can bring people together. Check out this sample of Japanese Klezmer. Maybe they'll come to our next Klezmer Idol?
Next stop, Tokyo?
