Subject: RE: Hebrew/ Yiddish/ Ladino songs
Shula,

There are a couple of good Klezmer CD's out there with some yiddish folk songs. Itzak Perlman's "In the Fiddler's House" and "Live in the Fiddler's House" are two excellent CD's with a few songs on them - very theatrical. They are also good introductions to some of the top Klezmer bands in the USA, the Klezmatics, Brave Old World and the Andy Statman Orchestra among others.

Some of the names of the Klez bands out there are hilarious: The Hot Latkes, THe Mazeltones, What the Chelm, See if you can find Ari Davidow's Klezmer pages, He has info on nearly every Klezmer band in existance, they are a real hoot! Below are some other linx I've collected:
