The program, The Tshudne Shtunde (Bizarre Hour) features music from Strom’s ethnographic trips in Eastern Europe collecting klezmer and Yiddish songs from 1981-through today. This week will feature stories about Czechoslovakia. Songbird and fellow musician Elizabeth Schwartz will sing tunes from Yugoslavia and Hungary as well. She’ll join Strom in singing Khasidic nigunim from his “yikhes” (pedigree) Stolin, Belarus.
