For over three years, the Yedidim Choir lead by Yanky Orlansky has been enthralling music lovers all across the United States and Canada, with a distinctive sound all their own. They stormed onto the Jewish music scene six months ago with the release of their debut album “Ezkero“. Ezkero wasn’t a album featuring a collection of songs like some choirs have done in the past. Rather, it was an album with ALL New amazing compositions featuring arrangements by the very talented Avrumi Berko and Dudi Kalish as well as compositions of Dudi Kalish.
This week in the yiddish paper Dee Voch, readers will be treated to a FREE CD inside. The song recorded by the Yedidim choir, features one of the biggest hits of the past year Benny Friedman‘s Yesh Tikvah composed by Ari Goldwag. When asked why they picked this particular song, choir leader Yanky Orlansky answered that the words Yesh Tikvah are in megillas Eicha. “We are mourning the loss of the Bish Hamikdash, but it’s very important to remember that Yesh Tikva, there IS hope, and Moshiach is not far off.” The twist on this recording of Yesh Tikvah, is that Yedidim recorded the song with all new YIDDISH lyrcis!. That’s right. Yanky felt that it was important to translate the Hebrew message into Yiddish so more people could understand the song and continue spreading the message of YeshTikvah. The song also features the strong powerful vocals of one of Yedidim’s brightest members, Menachem Moskowitz.
If you do NOT get Dee Voch, the single will be available as a FREE download on MostlyMusic.com. And don’t forget to visit Yedidim Choir’s website for more information or bookings www.yedidimchoir.com.
