Photographer's Note

It was fun. The Japanese artists on the Jewish festival in Warsaw, singing the klezmer songs in English, Japanese, Yiddish, Hebrew, and Arabic. But just the one still picture is nothing. Look and first of all, hear :

Although the name states this is a Jewish Culture Festival, the festival is a multicultural celebration showing how multiple influences can generate a creative spark and remind us we are a community of people striving for a common good. Taking place over 9 days, over 150 events, and 250 artists from Poland, Israel, the United States, Germany, France, Denmark, Belgium, Spain and Japan, that purpose holds true. Besides musical events, the Festival will host many other events. Theater performances of the Jewish Theater in Warsaw, the Nephesh and Yiddishpiel Theaters from Israel, book promotions, meetings with artists, film screenings, culinary workshops, workshops for children, and educational walks in the old Jewish areas of Warsaw.

Isaac Bashevis Singer (Yiddish: יצחק באַשעװיס זינגער‎; November 21, 1902 – July 24, 1991) was a Polish-born Jewish writer in Yiddish, awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1978. The Polish form of his birth name was Icek Hersz Zynger. He was a leading figure in the Yiddish literary movement, writing and publishing only in Yiddish.
The street where Singer grew up was located in the impoverished, Yiddish-speaking Jewish quarter of Warsaw. There his father served as a rabbi, and was called on to be a judge, arbitrator, religious authority and spiritual leader in the Jewish community. The unique atmosphere of pre-war Krochmalna Street can be found both in the collection of stories from Singer's childhood, as well as in those novels and stories which take place in pre-war Warsaw.

Piotr is the master photographer of concerts, I dedicate this picture and video for him.
