Black Ox Orkestar - Nisht Azoy (2006)

Haven't posted any klezmer yet! Why not!
Black Ox Orkestar is a band composed of Jewish-Canadian musicians, many from fellow Constellation Records labelmates Godspeed You! Black Emperor and A Silver Mt. Zion.
Nisht Azoy means "Not Like This". The album is completely in Yiddish and (i'm told, as i do not understand Yiddish) about topics relating to the Jewish diaspora. If you don't like non-english singing this is probably not for you.

Kind of similar musically to A Hawk and a Hacksaw.
