Seven Notes to Freedom. Jewish Songs Against the Soviet Regime
In the early 1970’s, records of songs prohibited in the USSR started to emerge in the West and in Israel. Some of these songs were of a clearly political character, calling on the Soviet government to let the Jewish people go. The others, were purely religious, however secretively recorded in the USSR, because of the state’s hostile attitude towards religion. Satirical opuses of Soviet singers-songwriters, often times translated to Hebrew or Yiddish, could also be found on those records.
Each and every of those records had its own story. Sometimes, these stories amounted to a real drama. Other times, they were rather comical or just a commercial project.
All this and more, will be discussed during the presentation.
