CD Reviews

Nikitov Amulet
N. Warshowsky | West Orange, NJ, USA | 02/15/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This CD is a very smooth part melodic, melancholic, cheerful, danceable classic songs/music of Eastern Europe sung in Yiddish (with translation inside the CD cover). The singer's articulation is excellent and I can clearly discern every part of every word though I wish the song lyrics would be included in English transliteration as well. It'a a warm acoustic sound of voice, acoustic guitar, acoustic bass and violin with wonderful improvisation and jazz/klezmer, Turkish, Gypsy influences as well. It reminds me of my Ashkenazic roots. My friend from Ghana loves it and has begun to sing parts as well. It also appeals to other African friends too. I think it has an international appeal. My twelve year old son loves it too. We sing it in the car and dance to it at home.
The songs are timeless - lullaby, song of peace, sadness of war, joy of blessings, relationships...
Songs include: Sha Shtil, Bai Mir Bistu Scheyn; Dona, Dona; Bessarabyanka, Mayn Rue Plats, Di Mizinke Oysgegebn; Malkele; Di Krenetse; Umru Mayne; Az der Rebe; Yankele; Reyzele.
This CD is perfect in a collection of Yiddish, Jazz or Multicultural collection. Give it as a gift. I got mine as a gift and now I will have to buy some for friends, perhaps for teachers..."
