Musical Performance: Borders & Ballads

Daniel Kahn, Yeva Lapsker and Jake Shulman-Ment
Thursday, September 26, 2019
8:00-10:00 PM
Britton Recital Hall Earl V. Moore Building Map
Detroit-born, Berlin-based singer, songwriter, translator and U-M alum Daniel Kahn returns to Ann Arbor for an intimate polyglot program in Yiddish, English, Russian, German, and French. Featuring images and surtitles designed and projected by co-translator and partner Yeva Lapsker, and acclaimed violist Jake Shulman-Ment, Kahn’s songscape traverses the borders of language, culture, history, and politics and draws on Kahn's own original songs and translations of Yiddish folksongs. In a time haunted by the specters of displacement and despotism, these are ballads without borders, anthems of solidarity and solitude, smuggled stories, forgotten futures.
