Renowned ethnomusicologist, documentarian, and klezmer musician Yale Strom teamed up with Transcontinental Music to create an exhaustive compilation of nigunim, horas, bulgars, and more. This songbook features melody lines and chords for 313 songs including many collected from the field by Strom himself in Eastern Europe and published here for the first time, plus a number of exclusive, out-of-print lost treasures not available anywhere else. Strom also provides a thorough, extensive written history and perspective of klezmer, complete with a glossary and archival photos. The CD includes 36 of the songs found in the book recorded by Strom and his band Hot Pstromi.
