Product Description


technical comment

  • Andrés Linetzky’s grandfather José was born in 1916 in Belz, in the heart of Europe. At the time, 6,000 people still lived there, 3,600 of them Jews. Jewish culture is at home in the town. The Linetzkys live in the ‘Street of musicians’. They are ‘Klezmers’, as musicians who play ‘yiddish’ music are referred to, and they own a bookshop. In 1929 – José is eight years old – the Linetzkys emigrate to Buenos Aires, escaping extermination. Among the few things they carry in their luggage, there is José’s mother’s mandolin. Almost a hundred years later, her instrument can be heard on this album. The young Linetzky generation plays ‘Beltz mas Sher’, a tribute to Belz. In their new South American environment, the Linetzkys meet regularly to play music at home. Klezmer is played, cultivated and transmitted from the great-grandfather to the grandfather, from the grandfather to the father, the son and the grandson. Diaspora in Buenos Aires. The tradition lives on!
