A tour with the CAM this fall for Socalled!
Updated: Jun 3, 2021
Socalled is going on tour with his concert Socalled sings Di Frosh this fall with the Warhol Dervish in the cultural centers of Montreal. This tour is presented as part of the Conseil des Arts de Montréal en tournée.
Socalled, “the mad wizard of Yiddish Hip-Hop”, goes back to his roots on his ground-breaking, heartbreaking program, Socalled sings Di Frosh. Featuring the Warhol Dervish, the program presents songs from the Yiddish Theatre, Hassidic melodies, Klezmer, folksong, songs from the Holocaust, from Israel, and even some original new songs.
Through song, so much history and culture can be exposed and given new life. The quartet arrangements give the music the harmonic respect it deserves, an integral and often overlooked element in presenting this material.
The program is funny, sad, beautiful, and dark with a diverse range of styles, colours, keys, modes and moods. The Yiddish revival is over, it’s the Yiddish era again; so let’s dig deep, let’s celebrate and explore the riches of this extraordinary culture.
