Album Review

Kahn, Daniel and The Painted Bird – “The Butcher’s Share” – [Oriente Musik]

aarbor   6/1/2022   CD, International

Daniel Kahn hails from Michigan, went of U of M, and now lives in Berlin. His band is called The Painted Bird – they play primarily klezmer style music. Kahn coined the word “Verfremdungsklezmer“, meaning “alienation klezmer music”, to describe their music. The group describes their music as “a mixture of Klezmer, radical Yiddish song, political cabaret and folk punk”, and it has been compared to the music of Tom Waits and Woody Guthrie. Some of the songs are written by Kahn, but many are adaptations of poems and songs by Jewish authors frequently with socio-political themes. AArbor
