Jewish Freilach Songs

Freilach is a Yiddish expression that means "happy" or "cheerful," and is commonly used to refer to a form of music. On Jewish Freilach Songs, Nathan "Prince" Nazaroff sings classic Jewish folk songs from Eastern Europe―such as the well-known "Tumbalalaika" and "Vander Ich Mir Lustig" (While I'm Happily Walking), with its very familiar melody―accompanying himself on the accordion and the octofone (a mandolin-like string instrument).

Liner notes include song lyrics in their original Yiddish and in the Hebrew transliteration as well as their English translation.
