“History is a list of dates that might not really reflect what happened on those dates. The tenth of July a train went from Paris to Auschwitz…that’s history. A song like “Schlof Mein Kind” (Sleep My Child) is a true reflection of those people on that train. That’s the history…that’s our experience.”
Jewish music is not just a bunch of songs on the weekly hit parade. Jewish songs are the essence of Yiddish-kite. Likewise, Ladino songs are the narrative of the Sephardic experience.
With the arrival of technology, we have the moral responsibility to gather this music for generations to come. THIS is the mission of SAVE THE MUSIC. We preserve the past and ensure the Yiddish renaissance of the future.
