More than 30 songs and dances from Eastern Europe – ranging in difficulty from easy to moderate and often to be played with 48 basses – provide an overview of the musical tradition of the people of Eastern Europe. Additional playing tips and explanations of the dance forms make it easier for musicians to perform the songs authentically. This book expands the background knowledge about cultural history through three interviews with musicians from the Klezmer scene.
