Here’s the blurb from our illustrious presenting partners, the Center for Traditional Music and Dance: Sunday, October 25: CTMD’s An-sky Institute for Jewish Culture is pleased to present a special concert and Tantshoyz Yiddish dance party celebrating the release on Smithsonian Folkways of a new CD by the Brother Nazaroff entitled The Happy Prince. In 1954, the mysterious outsider Yiddish troubadour Nathan “Prince” Nazaroff recorded a now-legendary album, “Jewish Freilach Songs” for Moe Asch and Folkways. The album has become a cult favorite for Yiddish music fans with all its discordant, obscure, jubilant and ecstatic glory. The Brothers Nazaroff is a supergroup paying tribute to the Prince and featuring Daniel “Danik Nazaroff” Kahn, Psoy “Pasha Nazaroff” Korolenko, Michael “Mishka Nazaroff” Alpert and Jake “Yankl Nazaroff” Shulman-Ment – converging from Berlin, Moscow, Scotland and Westchester. The group’s members regularly perform with ensembles such as the Painted Bird, Brave Old World and Di Naye Kapelye. At the Ukrainian East Village Restaurant, 140 Second Avenue in Manhattan’s East Village between St Mark’s and 9th Streets. Admission $15. Programmed as a special preview event for Yiddish New York (www.yiddishnewyork.com) in partnership with the Sholem Aleichem Cultural Center and Golden Land Concerts and Connections. (Concert starts at 7:00PM, doors open at 6:30PM)
SEE YOU THERE! NAZAROVYE!
Nazarishe Greetings to All!
Welcome to the web home of the Family Nazaroff! It is a page dedicated to our long-lost uncle Nathan “Prince” Nazaroff. The biggest Big Time Performer the Yiddish Streets and Stages ever forgot about! We, his humble “heirs” have taken it upon us to bring his legacy to light and life.
Stay tuned here for more info about upcoming events by The Brothers Nazaroff, a traveling troupe of tumlers, troubadours, and tunesmiths, dedicated to their Prince.
There will also be a Brothers Nazaroff tribute record coming out soon from Smithsonian Folkways, who released the original Nazaroff’s record in 1954!
Until soon. Zay Gezunt. And let us see us at SIMKHES!
