Ghetto Tango

In Recognition of International Holocaust Remembrance Day

Presents Two Performances of Ghetto Tango featuring leading Yiddish artists

Zalmen Mlotek, Daniella Rabbani and Avram Mlotek

Ghetto Tango highlights the songs and music performed in the underground cabarets that sprang up in the Jewish ghettoes in Nazi-occupied Europe during the Holocaust. At times edgy, sad, raucous, sardonic-- but always an expression of defiance and the will to survive!

The concert, which has been performed with outstanding success in major centers in the United States and Canada, will take place at GableStage at the Biltmore 1200 Anastasia Avenue, Coral Gables FL 33134. Tickets $36/Students $10
