A Jumping Night at the Garden of Eden

Can you tell I'm staying up late in another hotel cruising YouTube instead of going to bed? Anyway, here's another must see video...

"A Jumpin' Night in the Garden of Eden was the first film to document the klezmer revival, tracing the efforts of two founding groups, Kapelye and Boston's Klezmer Conservatory Band, to recover the lost history of klezmer music. A Michal Goldman film"

This YouTube video is only a short clip of the film. You can watch a longer version (26 minutes) on the FolkStreams website or order a copy of the full thing through First Run Films.

Hat Tip to YouTube user Folkstreamer for posting the video.
