Music Video: “Kinder Yohren”

Cantor Mendel Markel, vocals; Dima Harmon, piano; Gedaliah Aronson, guitar. A song by the famous Yiddish poet and songwriter Mordechai Gebirtig. who was killed by the Nazis in the Cracow Ghetto. We sat down to figure out what we wanted to do with this song for an upcoming project. I happened to have the video rolling (as I often happen to) and sort of dug what came out. Not real polished, very first draft-ish and shtetl like. I thought I’d give it more shtetl feel by adding pics from Roman Vinshniac who is well known for his photos of that era. This is what came out.
