An Acoustic Sample From Yosef Karduner

by Jewish Music Reporter August 17, 2011

Yosef Karduner one of the pioneers of Jewish music since its inception with numerous chart topping hits to his name such as the acclaimed Shir Lamaalot which generated a range of versions recorded by artists from across the musical spectrum, is currently celebrating the launch of his tenth album, with a difference.

In contrast to his previous albums, which contained a selection of new songs in Karduner’s unique style, his new album Kumsitz consists of the best of Karduner’s unforgettable hits and more, that were recorded at various live shows performed throughout the US last winter.

Karduner rarely performs live due to his modest nature.  The tremendous success of his many albums left his devoted producer, Yehuda Kunsman, no choice and he was forced to dispatch Karduner overseas for a round of performances. The overwhelming impact of the shows caught them by surprise and this together with the high quality professional recording as well as pressure from those involved ensured that a kumsitz album of the shows was just a matter of time.

The new album is comprised of sixteen tracks, among which are Tesameach, Yedid Nefesh, Vetaher Libenu, Tzaveh Yeshuot Yaakov, Shir Lamaalot, and others.

Karduner’s identity as a Breslover hassid finds expression in two of his albums which contain hassidic niggunim.One album contains Shabbat songs and features Shuli Rand, and another contains songs for Motzei Shabbat. The lyrics of the songs in the other albums as well have a trace of the enchanting quality of Rebbe Nachman.
