Thread Name: Flanders ballad in Polish--fun project!
Subject: RE: Flanders ballad in Polish--fun project!
When I was in Poland I also went to a Jewish Cultural Festival in Krakow which featured a lot of Klezmer music. Michael Alpert of 'Brave New World' taught the dance workshop. Alpert is an American who writes songs in Yiddish. I was very impressed that he taught through the medium of Polish. He could be a good person to contact before you go. I think he works at NYU??

The cassette I have of Brave New World gives the following contact addresses for the band:
