Save The Music has a new face
To commemorate the anniversary of the Uprising of the Warsaw Ghetto in April 19,1943, we have re-launched Save The Music Yiddish collections.
The sole task of this organization is to collect record and spread Jewish music throughout the world. Jewish identity in the arts now has a vehicle for the revival of its most natural and vital expression, the music.
Almost obliterated by the war, the Holocaust, soviet persecution, assimilation and the destruction of its languages and communities, Jewish music has survived.
Now it's our turn to make sure it not only survives but it becomes again the glue that binds together people to communities and the future to the past.
Songs of work and struggle, beautiful love melodies, poignant memories. Yiddish ballads, stomps, songs of love, pleasure and life, comic and homey songs; haunting songs that reflect the spirit and struggle of this people exist and will soon be available at our site at http://savethemusic.com
Many more are still hiding. Where? In an attic, a garage, a grandmother's boxes, and at homes where no record players are available or no new listeners are at hand.
We have set ourselves the task of finding the music and giving it new life -to go beyond survival to revival.
Our plan is to find, catalogue, and digitize this music to make it easily accessible to everybody everywhere in the world.
Anyone who cares about Jewish music can participate in Save the Music and the synergy it is creating.
Help us Save The Music before even one more record is broken or lost. There is a place for everyone in this enormous undertaking.
