Summary
This charming film documents the revival and popularity of Yiddish music in today's Europe. It is now considered "world music" and has become the passion of a new generation of artists both Jewish and non-Jewish. The films takes us on a musical tour of performances by artists from all over Europe, highlighting singers Karsten Troyke from Germany and Shura Lipovsky of the Netherlands. One of the features of the film is the subtitling of Yiddish lyrics so that an American audience can fully appreciate the songs. The performers explain why they became attracted to this music. While some of the artists introduce lyrical innovations, most of them interpret the repertoire as faithfully as possible. The performances and the enthusisatic audiences confirm that although Hitler killed the "shtetl "life but he was not able to silence its music
