The chosen title, Betàm Soul, comes from a contamination between English “soul”: mental, psycological, and Yiddish: “TAM”, as in “tam gan-eydn”, the Garden of Eden. The overall result takes us back to our original identity, through a spiritual, sensorial and sensual enjoyment.
Betàm Soul – Yiddish and poetry songs is a complex musical expression that goes beyond jazz, pop, ethnic or classical. It is a virtual journey through all these musical expressions. It delineates twelve passages from the traditional Yiddish repertoire for voice and piano. Some performances are original compositions by Mirko Signorile on Yiddish poetries; all of them are innovative arrangements of both performers Giovanna and Mirko.
