Yiddish, the language of Ashkenazic Jewry, arose some 900-1200 years ago as a result of contact with indigenous varieties of medieval German. Over the next few centuries, it grew to cover the second-largest language area in Europe, with Yiddish-speaking colonies being created in North and South America, Palestine/Israel, Australia and South Africa.

Part of a British revival of Yiddish culture, Hilda Bronstein's collection of Yiddish songs are to some degree what one would expect from a basic troupe performing at cultural and folk festivals. At the same time, however, the band (led by Merlin Shepherd) provides a good backing sound ranging from somber to joyous, but Bronstein herself is the star of the show, with a deep, throaty (almost Marlene Dietrich-like in some respects) intonation. The Polish dialect of Yiddish doesn't always lend itself to pretty pastoral sounds of course, but it seems that Bronstein is pushing the envelope even further than needed. Along with Merlin Shepherd's clarinet, the mix of old and new compositions is probably the key highlight of this recording. A handful of songs hearken back to the great Yiddish poets, a handful are from the theater era and immigration to America, a couple are from the wartime era and the partisan movements, and a couple of newer compositions make their debut as well.

Sonokinetic specializes in in-depth musical history heritage exploration since 2008. With “Yiddish” we fulfill our premise to capture part of the Jewish music culture and complement our signature sampling line with this very recognizable musical style. Different from the mystical Sephardic “Voices of Israel” and our cross-over to the Yemenite style, “Yiddish” brings a more Jewish-European oriented style which found its roots in the high-german and Ashkenazi language.
