Musical Pripetshik: Lyrics and Melodies of Traditional Yiddish Folk Songs

Hosted By: YIVO

Most Yiddish songs known today were created in the first half of the 20th century and distributed through commercial channels such as sheet music, concerts, and radio broadcasts. This discussion focuses on lesser-known Eastern Yiddish musical folklore that emerged over approximately four hundred years before the formation of the popular repertoire. The lecture will explore the older layers of this musical-poetic creativity, referred to as the “musical pripetshik,” and their significance in Jewish culture, evolving in meaning and function over time.
