Yiddish Glory tells the remarkable story of folklorists in the Soviet Union who risked their lives collecting songs from Jewish Red Army soldiers, Jewish refugees, victims and survivors of Ukrainian ghettos. Following the war, the researchers were arrested by Stalin; their work was confiscated, and they died thinking the collection was lost to history. But the songs were later discovered in unmarked boxes stored in the basement of the Ukrainian National Library, and brought to life through painstaking research, for the first time in 75 years.

88rising at Fillmore Review

Artists from the predominantly Asian and Asian-American collective, 88 Rising, performed at the Fillmore Saturday evening in Detroit. They delivered what their young fans were hoping a see--a raucous performance of trap-influenced rap music. The set-list included Rich Brian, Higher Brothers, Keith Ape, Niki, Kohn, August 08, and Don Krez. The concert opened with Don Krez who got the crowd hype with mainstream hip-hop spins. As the more popular acts performed, the crowd responded with their hands, hips, and feet. Keith Ape from Korea got the crowd going with his hit 'It G Ma.' Nikki was the one non-rap performer. Her vocals offered a welcomed change from the otherwise all-male acts. And the Higher Brothers from China kept it going with 'Made in China,' a song made popular largely from 88 Rising's reaction videos featuring more well-known artists such as Joey Purp, PNB Rock, and the Migos. The evening ended with Rich Brian, who hails from Indonesia. He ended the evening with the much-anticipated performance of Dat $tick. Overall, the set delivered what it intended to, hard-hitting hip-hop beats and a fresh set of performers that we seldom see in America.
