Daniel Kahn and the Painted Bird

Monmouth University Pollak Theatre

400 Ceder Ave

United States

Detroit-born, Berlin-based singer/songwriter, polyglot poet, translator and activist Daniel Kahn concocts furious, tender, electrifying and revolutionary Alienation Klezmer. With the Painted Bird, he presents a variety of passionate songs inspired in part by the struggles of Jewish revolutionaries at the turn of thecentury, and in part by his own intense desire for a better world. The Painted Bird has brought “Yiddish Punk Cabaret” to rock clubs, festivals and shtetls, from Berlin to Boston, Leningrad to Louisiana. The band has been referred to as “The Yiddish Pogues,” and Kahn was once described as “someone between Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan and Tom Waits �" but yiddish.” Fittingly, his Yiddish cover of Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah �" coincidentally released a few days before the passing of the great musician �" has gone viral, with over 700,000 views.
