Tape 53 - Songs of the Underworld (2)

Title

Tape 53 - Songs of the Underworld (2)

Description

"The folksongs created in and around the environment of the Jewish underworld communicate the sentiments and experiences of its members and their world. Their songs tell us about uncertainties, hazards and risks involved, apprehensions and fears of arrests and jail terms. They also reflect bravado and cockiness, humour and mischievousness, the nostalgia for a childhood that was once safe with God-fearing, caring parents. They also reveal the deeper sentiments of love for a woman."

(From Yiddish Folksongs from the Ruth Rubin Archive, p. 262).
