This one-of-a-kind concert by the brand-new Socalled String Quartet features Josh Dolgin (aka Socalled), the mad wizard of Yiddish hip-hop, on vocals backed by members of the Common Music Collective, playing newly commissioned transcriptions of classic Yiddish theater, folk, and art songs, some of which he uncovered right here in the Yiddish Book Center's archive of Yiddish sheet music from the early twentieth century. The program presents Socalled as you've never heard him before--stripped-down and unplugged, forefronting his genius as a performer and arranger while enlivening a new Yiddish music for the 21st century by celebrating and dusting off forgotten masterpieces for a new audience of music lovers.|
