Gefilte Trout will perform folk music from Eastern Europe, including music in the Jewish klezmer and Ladino (Judeo-Spanish) styles. The klezmer tunes follow a unique musical scale, called ahavo rabboh (abounding love) that was initially used by cantors in Jewish liturgical ceremonies. Since the 1800s, the scale has been used for upbeat dance tunes that are often played at Jewish weddings (e.g., the freylekh, bulgar, sher, hora, and the kolomeike). These dance tunes are marked by unique musical ornamentation referred to as “dreydlekh” (spinning tops), which includes slides, laughing sounds, and sobbing sounds. These dreydlekh can be heard in the work of Andy Statman and Yale Strom.
