Lebedik Un Freylekh

Arrangement related sound file(s): 

A classic klezmer song, originally composed by Romanian musician Abe Schwartz and performed by Abe Schwartz’s Orchestra and definitively recorded by the Klezmer Conservatory Band. The name means “Lively and Happy,” which also accurately describes Team Awesome’s show-stopping choreography that accompanies that song.

Klezmer is a musical tradition which parallels Hasidic and Ashkenazic Judaism. The repertoire is largely dance songs for weddings and other celebrations.
