Musician Daniel Gil will be performing music from his most recent CD, "Hava Nagila, for Real", Jewish folk music that has not been heard since before World War II, as well as traditional folk music that is more widely known. He will be playing guitar, bouzouki and violin, and will be sharing stories of the history behind the music. This program will be unique in that these songs come directly from the Kiselgof Archive, the largest musical record of Jewish life in pre-World War I Eastern Europe. Gil's CD is the first modern recording of these songs, and represents a part of Jewish civilization that was lost in the Holocaust. Hava Nagila is one of these "lost" songs and will be performed in its original version.
