Klezmer Podcast 55 Posted

Klezmer Podcast 55- Edouard Kagansky.

I met so many interesting people this year at KlezKanada. One of them is Edouard Kagansky, an Accordion player originally from Moldova, now living in Canada. Kagansky has a vast repertoire of music that includes Jewish, Russian, Hungarian, Romanian, Greek, Turkish, Macedonian, and Bulgarian. And probably some others as well. He has a real passion for the music and was excited to pass along his knowledge to those of us who attended KlezKanada this year. Pay close attention to the interview because his English is a bit difficult to understand. But it is worth it to hear what he has to say.
Run time: 37:22
