The Locals / Di Ortike / Tutejsi

CD + book (College of Eastern Europe, Wroclaw, 2009)
Minsker Kapelye's new CD, "Di Ortike / The Locals / Tutejsi" has been produced and released by the College of Eastern Europe in Wroclaw, Poland. This album of 70 minutes duration is accompanied by 46 pages book in hard cover which had been designed and created by Ivan 'Muertos' Dribas, a talented computer and video game artist. "The Locals" has become a result of a decennial research undertaken by Dmitri Slepovitch and Nina Stepanskaya, ז''ל. In fact, this is the first ever album based specifically on the musical tradition of the Litvaks, the Belarusian-Lithuanian Jews. There are traditional klezmer pieces and Yiddish / macaronic songs, songs composed by Jack Rekhtseyt and Dmitri Slepovitch, klezmer fusion, klezmer jazz, musique concrète and rap in Yiddish on this disc. This Minsker Kapelye's third CD was recorded at one of Poland's finest studios, the Tower Studio, in mid-June, 2008. It is available for purchase at the KEW online store (Polish version only), several other Polish web stores, like Ksiegarnia Wysylkowa (in English).
