Host Ed Kraus
Hello everybody, with all the excitement of having to do the Emergency Alert System announcement during the show, I neglected to tell you WHO Ramón Tasat is!
Ramón Tasat is a cantor who was born in Buenos Aires. He learned Ladino from his grandmother, and over the years moved to the United States and received a doctorate in voice performance from the University of Texas at Austin. Cantor (Dr.) Tasat has performed all over the world and has produced numerous recordings including those played on the Yiddish Hour today.
More information about Ramón Tasat can be found at his website www.ramontasat.com . This was not our usual "Yiddish Hour" but I hope you enjoyed hearing the music today as much as I have enjoyed putting this show together.
The piyut for Tu'Bshvat was found at the Piyut archive at www.piyut.org.il where you can browse in either Hebrew or in English. It's a great resource for those interested in the variety of liturgical melodies around the world.
