image2-2

DO NOT MISS THIS GREAT SHOW COMING TO OPEN STUDIO …

Daniel Kahn (USA, Germany) is the frontman of the punk-folk cult-kapelye ‘The Painted Bird’. A singer, songwriter and translator, Kahn’s Yiddish rendition of Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’ has been viewed by over 300,000 people online. Psoy Korolenko (USA, Russia) is a poet-singer/songwriter, scholar, journalist and musician. This avant-bard Muscovite created his unique multilingual cabaret, combining traditions of Russian and European popular and urban folk song, and Yiddish folk and theatre song, with elements of rap and free-style poetry. Together, they are ‘The Unternationale’, a dialectic duo of daring polyglot pandemonium. They are also known as Brothers Danik and Pasha Nazaroff, two of the traveling troubadours tracing the trails of their long lost “Prince” Nazaroff. Together, they smuggle songs across the borders, language, culture, ideology, taste and timezone.

$10 on the door. Get in early! This will sell out.
