The Voices of Ashkenaz ensemble has embarked on an exciting journey. Six musicians from USA, Ukraine/Israel and Germany dedicate themselves to revealing the surprising relationships and parallels between Yiddish and German folk songs.

The program is a creative approach to these relationships, a game with melodies and texts. Traditions that once belonged together in the old Ashkenaz (Hebrew for Germany) come together again; a particularly fascinating meeting due to their different developments in different cultures, periods and places.
