Groyser Orkester/Zingeray – tunes, songs & post-KlezNorth montage

Although we cannot be together this year, we will still focus on a couple of songs that will run throughout the weekend. These will be:

  • Yikhes (also for the instrumentalists)
  • Other tune to be announced

After the weekend, film yourself playing / singing Yikhes for the montage film, and we’ll have a showing of the resulting virtual Groyser Orkester/Zingeray as part of the post-KlezNorth cabaret and schmooze. If you haven’t filmed yourself for a montage before, drop in on Ilana Cravitz during lunchtime on Saturday / Sunday to try it out!
