Featured Artist - Aufwind

October 2010


AUFWIND was founded in Berlin 1984, when Claudia Koch, Hardy Reich and Andreas Rohde created several programs of Yiddisch song; they then traveled to places of Jewish interest in Poland, Hungary and Rumania and undertook extended studies of Yiddish language, history and culture.

In November 1987 the band received an award at the 9th Tage des Chansons in Frankfurt/Oder in East Germany. In 1988, after clarinetist Jan Hermerschmidt and a bassist had joined the band, AUFWIND began to focus more on klezmer, as distinct from folksong.
