Discover the Festival of Jewish Culture „Singer’s Warsaw“
The last week of August will see Warsaw full of music, film, literature, and visual arts. The Shalom Foundation brings one of the leading Jewish Festivals, dedicated to Isaac Bashevis Singer back to the streets of Warsaw through music exhibitions, theatre, workshops, film screenings, art installations, meetings, and lectures, celebrating Jewish culture from all over the world. This year’s highlight will be Matthew Paul Miller, known by his Hebrew name and stage name Matisyahu (“Gift of God”), American alternative rock and reggae musician. During the festival the vicinity of Próżna Street and the Grzybowski Square transforms into a colourful dancing and singing neighbourhood, filled with everything from artwork to food. This year, the festival expands also to the Parade Square where various art forms, shows and concerts are planned. Contemporary Jewish music resounds at concerts of the leading avant-garde instrumentalists from both Poland and abroad: Grzegorz Turnau, KROKE, Joshua Nelson, Kati Carr, just to name a few.
