(Complete lyrics in Yiddish, transliteration and English translation are included in the PDF download for this album) Beneath the Trees the grass grows, Ay-la-lay-lyu-lyu, And the cruel winds blow, So sleep, my little son. Don't sit by the window, my child, Because you can feel the wind; And I wouldn't want you, lovely one, To catch cold. The sky is already dark with clouds, Just like here in my heart. Ay-la-lay-lyu-lyu, Sleep, my darling child, Ay-la-lay-lyu-lyu, And stay well.

A little sun, a little rain A peaceful place to lay your head As long as you're healthy, you can be happy. A shoe, a sock, a dress without patches Three or four coins in your pocket As long as you're healthy, you can be happy. The air is free for each one alike The sun shines for everyone, poor or rich. A bit of joy, a bit of laughter, a drink with friends now and then As long as you're healthy, you can be happy (Yiddish lyrics, transliteration and English translation are included in the PDF download for this album.)

Repertoire ranges from rambunctious to entrancing: neo-traditional folk dance, mystical melodies,Yiddish swing & retro tango, late Soviet-era Jewish drinking song, re-grooved standards, & genre-defying originals. ... more
