Idelsohn Society's Passover music compilation

 Artworks-000001139048-6Y8Tbw-Original Co-founded by my pal David Katznelson, the Idelsohn Society is a non-profit dedicated to the musicology of great old Jewish music by the likes of Irving Fields, Gershon Kingsley, and The Barry Sisters. Following up on their killer Hanukkah Mix last year, the Idelsohn gang put together "Exodus 2.0," a new free compilation in celebration of Passover, which starts on sundown March 29. Josh Kun from Idelsohn says, "It's a taste of what's to come on our June release, BLACK SABBATH: THE SECRET MUSICAL HISTORY OF BLACK-JEWISH RELATIONS, featuring Nina Simone, Aretha Franklin, Johnny Mathis, & many more."

Exodus 2.0: Idelsohn Society Passover Mix 2010


    1. in regards to the picture, i thought pepsi was always kosher?

      Depends on you’re talking about Ashkenazi or not. They don’t consider corn to be kosher for passover whereas Sephardic Jews will eat it during passover.

  1. Not Passover music, but I can very heartily recommend the excellent ¡Mazeltov, Mis Amigos!, a collection of Jewish songs done to Latin rhythms.

    I don’t know about you merry mutants, but I’m a sucker for cultural crossovers in music.


    I wonder if there’s any mention of the Orioles and Debbie Chessler in that.

  3. I know it’s not as key a holiday- but could they perhaps be talked into mixing up a Purim playlist(next year)?

  4. i was grooving to the passover tape and by chance the next thing in my itunes was talib kweli hostile gospel part 2, it flowed in so well!
