Episode 2 of Ethnomusicology Today, “Swedish Klezmer and Jewish Identity with David Kaminsky,” is now available on iTunes and on the SEM website.

Episode #2:
In this episode we talk with David Kaminsky, whose article “Just Exotic Enough, Swedish Chamber Klezmer as Postnational World Music and Mid-East Proxy” was published in the Spring/Summer 2014 issue of the journal Ethnomusicology. David interrogates the discourse of two Swedish, non-Jewish chamber klezmer bands, drawing out the complexities of heritage, identity, and cultural ownership.
