Berlin based FAYVISH brings together what have been carefully divided so far - singer/songwriter, punkpop and the Yiddish language.
Since June 2007, Fabian Schnedler and his comrades-in-arms invoke and assemble traditional music and Yiddish lyrics of the 20th century, referring to distinguished lyricists like Peretz Markish, Beyle Schaechter-Gottesman, Morris Rosenfeld and Peretz Miranski, and put them in a new context.
On their debut-CD with the keynote title "YIDDPOP", released by ORIENTE's sublabel DANZONE, they offer 13 contemporary yiddish songs, dealing with farewells, revolutionary rage and the "dirty town" New York. The band's inherent minimalistic sound has been emphasized by some special guests.
This is the most individual, natural, flowing, and deeply connected take on Yiddish language and song I've heard in a long, long time. (Alan Bern)
