Today we’re going back in time in a way and exploring some Yiddish radical classic tunes with Brivele! Brivele is a Seattle-based anti-fascist klezmer folk-punk trio who braid together oral history, Yiddish language, contemporary and old-country musical genres, American Vaudeville, and visual arts. Check out their Bandcamp page here!

I had a chance to speak with two members of the band a while ago, Stefanie and Maia, and they talk about the lineage of this music, and why it’s just as important to be putting out anti-fascist klezmer today as it was 100 years ago.
