From When Socialists Spoke Yiddish

Happy May Day – enjoy this English/Yiddish ditty from Daniel Kahn & The Painted Bird. It’s called “March of the jobless corps / Arbetslozer Marsh” and seems perfectly appropriate for May Day and basically any time while President Trump is in office. The band is based in Berlin (of course) but Kahn was born in Michigan (of course!) a state that’s been ravaged by economic downturns and Wall Street shenanigans. Our new fave Klezmer band!
