Lin Jaldati & Ensembel - Rejsele - Music of the Eastern European Jews Vol. IV

After World War II, there were still artists who performed Yiddish music on both sides of the Berlin Wall. In West Germany these included the folk singer Peter Rohland, the ensembles Zupfgeigenhansel and Espe, and the duo Hai and Topsy Fankl. East Germany had the state-subsidized Synagogue Choir in Leipzig (Leipziger Synagogalchor) and a handful of artists who, like Perry Friedman and Lin Jaldati, devoted themselves to Yiddish song.

Interestingly, Friedman, who immigrated to the GDR in the 1950s from Canada, and Jaldati, who moved to East Berlin from Holland, were devoted Communists and viewed Yiddish songs as vehicles for political statements. Lin Jaldati, venerated in the GDR as the First Lady of Yiddish song, perfomed continuously until 1988, when she gave one of her last concerts at the second festival of Yiddis Culture in East Berlin.

"Rejsele" was record at the Yiddish Folk Festival Zurich 1984, with Lin Jaldati and Jalda Rebling (vocals), Kathinka Rebling (viola) and Eberhard Rebling (piano).
