Taking my old musical love out of the case I have trapped it in for so many years, I found a new love for Jewish folk music. Of course my rusty clarinet fingers aren't even close to holding a klezmer melody, but with enough fiddling I'm sure I'll get... closer. Shock and awe, I am a Jew; why else would I be so often battling feelings of guilt and anxiety and adore stand-up comedy? Let that be a reminder; wishing for Israel to treat Palestinians with full rights and freedom doesn't mean I hate my cultural background. How'd you think this would sound; a klezmer-dabke fushion?
P.S. I've been working on animations and such, so that's a sorry for not posting so often... I'll get some photographs of some paintings I did this summer up and about soon!
