Soul to Soul

Jan 18 - 2021

Ashkenaz is the exclusive Canadian partner in the presentation of  National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene’s livestream concert “Soul to Soul,” presented on the US national holiday of Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday, January 18, 2021 at 4pm (EDT).

Soul to Soul marks the historical connections between two peoples and two cultures whose destinies have so often intersected.  The common struggle against oppression and discrimination, and the ongoing strivings for equal rights and social justice have brought about alliances and close cooperation between the African American and American Jewish communities over many years.  This has given us a shared and rich musical legacy that is movingly celebrated in Soul to Soul. Conceived and directed by Zalmen Mlotek, Artistic Director of NYC’s National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene, the show features Lisa Fishman, Cantor Magda Fishman, Elmore James,  Tony Perry, Maestro Mlotek, and Tatiana Wechsler, who is supervising the video production for this historic holiday performance.
