Cofounder, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist of the Klezmatics, Lorin Sklamberg is also the sound archivist at the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research. In this multi-media chat, he presents some of the rare treasures found in YIVO's holdings of commercial and private sound documents (including materials from the collection of the folklorist and singer Ruth Rubin) and discusses how the archive has been a major catalyst in the resurgence of Yiddish culture and how it has informed his own career as a performer and instructor.|
