Yiddish and Gypsy music performed by Fay Sussman and her band…

Musica Viva’s Café Carnivale presents “The Klezmer Connexion” in an evening of electrifying Yiddish and Gypsy music featuring songstress Fay Sussman.

Fay Sussman’s passion is the preservation of the rich heritage of Yiddish language and music taught to her by her late Holocaust survivor father. Fay also sees music as a tool to unite and draw Australians of diverse cultures together and has produced numerous intercommunity musical events. Fay is a founding committee member for the upcoming inaugural Sydney Jewish Music Festival – Shir Madness. While not making music and building interfaith bridges, Fay travels around NSW with Courage to Care, a travelling exhibition which has been developed by B’nai B’rith, designed to convey a message of communal tolerance and living in harmony.

Café Carnivale was established by Musica Viva Australia in 2000 to provide performance opportunities in Sydney for musicians of non-English speaking backgrounds.

Musica Viva  was founded in 1945 by Richard Goldner who was a Jewish Romanian-born, Viennese-trained Australian violist, pedagogue and inventor.
