ethnomusicologia:

“I sing Jewish songs not because they are better than the songs of my neighbour. I sing them because they’re mine. And unless I sing them, that part of the culture will vanish and that wonderful meadow of proliferating flowers, with a profusion of flowers, will have the Jewish flower missing. That’s why I sing Jewish songs.”

Theodore Bikel, legend of Jewish folk music and musical theatre, died July 20th 2015 at the age of 91. He is much missed.
