Synopsis by Kathryn Tamms
The story of the revival of Jewish soul music is told through the life of Giora Feidman. He performed the best of the classical repertoire with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra for 18 years before making the decision to return to his roots, becoming a klezmer, or Jewish soul musician. This program by Uri Barbash takes the viewer on a fascinating journey into the world of klezmer music, and introduces one of the great Jewish musicians of all time. According to a New York Times review, "Mr. Feidman's extraordinary introspective and celebratory playing...is filled with a sense of spirit, purpose, and deep understanding."
