LOOK FROM ASIDE
In Brief ...
July 28-August 2 Kiev hosted an international Kleizmer music festival "Di kale shemt zikh take, ober hanoe hot zi" - "Bride is bashful but satisfied". I think this witty wedding saying can well characterize feelings Jews experienced in the Soviet times listening to their folk melodies. The key word of the phrase is namely "bashful".
