*June 11 – Dmitri Slepovitch’s Litvakus
Litvakus is a New York based klezmer and world music quintet led by Dmitri Zisl Slepovitch. It brings together deeply rooted pieces discovered through the extensive research carried on in Eastern Europe, jazz, reggae, world and classical music being the primary background for most of the band members. The band gives a new invigorating touch to the nearly forgotten Jewish, Belarusian, Ukrainian, Polish, and Lithuanian tunes, rare Hassidic niggunim, songs in Yiddish and other languages spoken by the Eastern European Jewish communities and their neighbors. Litvakus is closely involved in creating the ethnographic theatre, through the collective’s creative approach to old music sources and storytelling.
*June 4 – Double Bill: Levitt Legacy Tango Project & Matt Temkin’s Yiddish Jam Band
David Levitt, trombonist & bandleader of the Levitt Legacy, continues the legacy of another Klezmer dynasty. His father, clarinetist Marty Levitt was a prolific and popular bandleader in the 60’s and 70s in NY and his grandfather, Jack Levitt was a member of the famous Boibriker Kapelye, in the early part of the 20th century.
The Levitt Legacy Tango band is making it’s premiere appearance on June 4 at Stephen Wise Synagogue. The music was popular in Eastern Europe in the 1930’s and 1940’s. It was brought to this country by Holocaust survivors who settled in the U.S. after the war. The ensemble is led by trombonist Dave Levitt. Mr. Levitt’s late father Marty arranged this repertoire back in the 1960’s. These arrangements have not been played publicly for over 30 years. We’re happy to keep this music alive and present it to a new audience.
Matt Temkin’s Yiddishe Jam Band explores the intersection of Jazz and Klezmer music. The band is influenced a diverse soundscape of artists including by Dave Tarras, Sammy Musiker, Benny Goodman, Count Basie, and Quincy Jones. Come and bring your dancing shoes.
