Continental Subway *

Daniel Kahn and the Painted Bird

Originally from Detroit, Kahn has been a part of the Berlin and international klezmer scene as a songwriter, translator, and performer for over a decade, combining his own politically charged compositions with re-imaginings and transformations of well-known pieces in Yiddish, English, German, and Russian.
