Daniel Kahn and the Painted Bird featuring Psoy Korolenko
Yiddishkayt is thrilled to present international Yiddish music sensation Daniel Kahn & the Painted Bird! The band comes to West Hollywood for this one-night event with their new album "Bad Old Songs" with special guest Psoy Korolenko.

Formed in Berlin in 2005, the Painted Bird has built an international cult following, touring from Moscow to Marseille, Istanbul to Indiana. Playing everywhere from underground punk clubs to Central Park Summer Stage, Turkish cabarets to abandoned Polish synagogues, Daniel Kahn and the band challenge the borders between radical and traditional, lyrical and political, east and west, folk and punk, mama loshn and loshn hora.

"Bad Old Songs," the fourth album from Daniel Kahn & the Painted Bird is a dark and intimate follow-up to their award-winning "Lost Causes," featuring polyglot reinventions of Yiddish folk songs and classics from Leonard Cohen and Franz Josef Degenhardt. In the desolate borderlands between Berlin, Detroit, New York, and Yiddishland, these Bad Old Songs are the midnight reveries of a lost time that is yet to come.

"Detroit-born, Berlin-based singer/songwriter, poet, translator, activist Daniel Kahn concocts furious, tender, electrifying and revolutionary Alienation Klezmer. Accordion charged with punk rock... the free-spirited attitude of the New York Tzadik circle, cabaret flair, and scraps of Tom Waits."
-Rolling Stone [Germany]

"Daniel Kahn & the Painted Bird are to Klezmer what the Pogues were to Folk: shtetl music spiked with a proper shot of punk: polyglot, paneuropean punk folk. Kahn writes great crooked songs between Leonard Cohen and Mordechai Gebirtig, between Nick Cave and Hirsh Glik. With a light hand, he translates and adapts old songs, making them his own."
Die Zeit

Kahn's co-conspirators are an all-star band of young new Yiddish music luminaries:
Jake Shulman-Ment (violin): NY's virtuoso back from exile in the wilds of Moldavia and Paris; Michael Tuttle (bass): US-Berlin expat composer, sound artist, and deep sea bassist; and Hampus Melin (drums): Swedish-Berlin mainstay time-keeper of underground jazz and klezmer.
