“We live in an era of journeys. Millions of people are on the move, trying to find new lives, a place to forge new directions.” Arnold Zable, author, the Fig Tree

Narrated by Arnold Zable, with Kavisha Mazzella, Klezmania, Costas Tsicaderis, Anthea Sidiropoulos, Klezmeritis, Freydi Mrocki, David Krycer and more, this concert celebrates the work of a leading Australian writer as part of The Age Melbourne Writers’ Week.

To create a musical companion to Arnold Zable’s book The Fig Tree, Arnold and the Boite have brought together some of Melbourne’s finest musicians and songwriters.

The Fig Tree CD features Kavisha Mazzella’s moving songs that speak for the dispossessed; Klezmer bands, Klezmania and Klezmeritis pexpress the vitality and pathos of Eastern European Jewish music; David Krycer and Freydi Mrocki sing Yiddish poetry; Anthea Sidiropoulos and Costas Tsicaderis evoke the Greek islands and the migrant experience; and the legendary Greek singer Maria Farantouri gave permission for the inclusion of her famous Song of Songs.
