Soul Songs Overview


The Philadelphia Folklore Project presents, Soul Songs: Inspiring Women of Klezmer.  Eleven extraordinarily accomplished musicians – all of whom happen to be women  – will be convening in Philadelphia from across North America for a world premiere, one-time-only concert of new Klezmer music.

Susan Watts, the Artistic Director of the concert says: “Klezmer is the soul music of Jews of Eastern European heritage. Not religious, Klezmer is celebratory. It’s the soundtrack to important moments in our lives.”

Be part of this history-making event as these women, along with production designer and puppeteer Jenny Romaine, take center stage, sharing their spectacular and imaginative visions and voices, and breathing new life into a centuries-old tradition.
