Since the early 1960s, Hassidic music has become increasingly central to both mainstream and alternative Jewish religious practice. Since the 1980s, it’s also become a crucial component of the klezmer and Yiddish music revival. Hankus Netsky explores the evolution of Hassidic music, from its inception in the late 1700s to today.
