Judaic Studies faculty member at Vilnius University Dr. Marija Krupoves has recorded her second CD. Titled "Without a Country," it features the song traditions of several Eastern European stateless cultures, almost all of which also found a home in Marija's native Lithuania. In addition to songs of the Roma (gypsies), Tatars, Karaites, Belarusians, and Russian Old Believers, all performed in the original languages, Marija sings two Yiddish songs (a genre she has intensively researched on field trips) and, in Ashkenazic Hebrew, her own setting of a selection from the biblical "Song of Songs." Moving further east, she has also included two songs from the Sephardic tradition in Ladino. Marija, on guitar, is accompanied by the virtuoso mandolinist (and '02 Summer Program student) Joey Weisenberg and the bassist Travis DiRuzza. Marija's concert of these songs, performed during the May Yiddish Educator Course, was enthusiastically acclaimed. For further details on the CD, please e-mail email@example.com.
