KLEZMER (article first published : 2005-12-13)

On June 2, 2002, artSMart published an article titled Klezmer which can be seen at http://www.artsmart.co.za/music/archive/1445.html

artSMart received a concerned response from Inna Barmash who indicated that large portions of the article were direct and unchanged copies of an article she wrote a few years ago for a student publication. She cited a couple of the identical paragraphs:

"It is music of uncontrollable joy fused with irrevocable pathos."

"With the fall of the iron curtain, pilgrimages to long-lost eastern European ancestral homes became a fashionable and almost obligatory form of vacation for many Jews from all over the world and one could see them hopelessly searching for great-grandma’s shtetl and visiting ancestral burial places. "

artSMart received the article in good faith from the author but, while putting the paragraphs in quotes, didn't write down the original source.

Please note that many of the quotations in this article are directly attributable to Inna Barmash and can be seen in Why Klezmer? at www.princeton.edu/~klez/klezmer.shtml
