Yiddish Blues, World Beat & Reggae with Wolf Krakowski

Interview with Jewish singer and guitarist Wolf Krakowski on his remakes of classic Yiddish songs from the Holocaust as blues, world beat, folk and reggae. Wolf describes how his personal history infused these melodies in him and his desire to "give the audio finger" to the Nazis.

Also, the Israel Beat Poetry Corner continues with Purim poetry from Efrayim Levenson, author of Dances With Tears.

Plus, music from Danny Golan, Eido Partel, Avishai Amitzur, SHI 360, Amir Elyaho and the CD-giveaway trivia question of the week.
