Soul Exodus

Film Screening and Discussion with Bob Cohen
12:00, Documentary Film Center

Soul Exodus (2016, documentary, digital, color, 92 minutes) The story of five secretive characters, told with Klezmer music. Five 21st century young and not so young men someplace in the world. They are musicians in search for someone and something which might have been born in their imagination. Once upon a time in the beginning of the 20th century there lived a Klezmer musician and storyteller Prince Nazaroff. Many people don’t believe he ever existed, but these five do. They have imagined him, and imagination can be stronger than reality. To this day, Nazaroff lives in them. They can’t except that something could disappear forever. They call themselves ‘The Brothers Nazaroff’. A deeply emotional story told through Klezmer music about identity, emigration, inner emigration, brothers and godbrothers, religion and belief, faith and disbelief. A modern story about our strange world we live in. Starring 'The Brothers Nazaroff' Daniel Kahn, alias Danik Nazaroff Bob Cohen, alias Zaelic Nazaroff Michael Alpert, alias Meyshke Nazaroff Jake Shulman Ment, alias Yankl Nazaroff Psoi Korolenko, alias Pasha Nazaroff

Music from Not So long Ago

Traditional Jewish Music of Central Europe
20:00, DOM Centre

In partnership with Hungarian Cultural Center in Moscow Di Naye Kapelye Concert Di Naye Kapelye began in Budapest in 1993 as a project to explore the roots of Klezmer music in Hungary and Central Europe. Field research among older Jewish and Roma musicians in Transylvania, Moldavia, and Hungary provided insights and repetoire of the folk music styles and performance of Jewish music in villages in the decades after World War II. Although they may sound archaic, this is music learned from living sources.
