Ottawa Chamberfest | Josh “Socalled” Dolgin Sings Yiddish, with Warhol Dervish
July 22 @ 9:30 pm - 11:30 pm$59
Josh “Socalled” Dolgin, “the mad wizard of Yiddish Hip-Hop”, digs into his roots with this heart breaking, trailblazing show, Socalled sings Yiddish. Joined by the string quartet Warhol Dervish, Socalled will present songs from the Yiddish Theatre, Hasidic melodies, Klezmer, folksong, the Holocaust, Israel, and some new originals.
Says Socalled: “Through song, so much history and culture can be exposed and given new life. The quartet arrangements give the music the harmonic respect it deserves… The program is funny, sad, beautiful, and dark with a diverse range of styles, colours, keys, modes and moods. Let’s dig deep, celebrate, and explore the riches of this extraordinary culture.”
Accompanied by Warhol Dervish, an “unorthodox chamber music collective” who seek to blur the lines separating classical music from other styles through collaboration, this made-in-Montreal partnership is sure to bring out the best in both Dolgin and the Warhol Dervishes. Club SAW’s laid-back atmosphere makes the perfect backdrop for a “marriage of voice in performance with quartet arrangements [that] is so profoundly affecting” (David O’Brien, The Barefoot Review, June 15, 2019).
Josh “Socalled” Dolgin is a pianist, producer, composer, arranger, rapper, singer, journalist, photographer, filmmaker, magician, cartoonist and puppet maker. He has lectured and led master classes in music festivals from Moscow to Paris, London to LA, and Krakow to San Francisco, performing on every continent. With 6 solo albums to his name, his list of collaborators knows no generational, social, cultural, nor religious boundaries.
