Animated Music Video for "Ich a Mazeldicker Yid" by The Brothers Nazaroff

The Brothers Nazaroff: The Happy Prince is a boisterous, high-energy tribute to cult Yiddish troubadour Nathan “Prince” Nazaroff, who recorded the mysterious Folkways 10-inch record Jewish Freilach Songs in 1954. International klezmer supergroup The Brothers Nazaroff, composed of Daniel Kahn, Psoy Korolenko, Michael Alpert, Jake Shulman-Ment, Bob Cohen, and Hampus Melin, breathe new life into the discordant, obscure, jubilant legacy of their Happy Prince. This animation by Ben Katchor gives a preview of The Brothers Nazaroff's raucous reinterpretation of one of The Happy Prince's songs.
