CD Overview

Millie and the Mentshn create original musical arrangements to suit their unique instrumentation and “chamber klezmer” style. The music captures changes in mood; the lyrics convey daily life, love, school, work, children, wars, immigration, and the struggle to hold on to tradition. Overall, the songs reveal the powerful will to survive in the soul of the Jewish people. There is something special about sharing stories from the past and there is something comforting in knowing where you come from and passing it on fun dor tsu dor (from generation to generation).
