Jewish tradition at Radlett Music Club
TRADITIONAL music of the Old Jewish World is just part of the repertoire of Lucie Skeaping and the Burning Bush who are appearing for Radlett Music Club next Tuesday, February 22.
The band also perform mystical dances of the orthodox Hasidic sect, Russian Klezmer melodies, comic songs of the Yiddish theatre and songs of the ghetto, Judeo-Spanish romances, devotional songs of the old Ottaman world and the rhythms of the Jewish East.
Interpretations are based on carefully researched local and historical styles and feature an exotic array of instruments.
The Burning Bush was formed after musician and broadcaster Lucie Skeaping was commissioned by the BBC to make a programme to mark the Quincentenary of the expulsion of the Jews from Spain.
The group’s debut concert at the Queen Elizabeth Hall was a sell-out and they have since performed in Europe and South America.
