All over the world, the joy of Chanukah is reflected in the rich and varied musical traditions of countries where Jews have lived and worshipped for centuries.
This year, WQXR celebrates the Festival of Lights with a special event featuring music from Central Europe, Central Asia, the Balkans, the Middle East — and Uganda! — performed by three outstanding ensembles: East of the River, Shashmaqam and The Dave Levitt Klezmer Trio.
WQXR host Naomi Lewin is our guide for a fascinating journey through Jewish music around the world.
