"Ethel Raim and the Center for Traditional Music and Dance: Three Decades of Showcasing Jewish Music"

With Ethel Raim and Professor Mark Slobin, Wesleyan University

Ethel Raim is Artistic Director of the Center for Traditional Music and Dance, one of the nation's preeminent traditional arts organizations, serving New York City for the past four decades. She has had a long-standing career as a performer, workshop leader, singing teacher, and recording artist. In the early 1960s, Ms. Raim founded, directed, and sang with the pioneering women's vocal ensemble, the Pennywhistlers, whose recordings of traditional Yiddish, Russian and Balkan music were instrumental in seeding more than a dozen women's vocal ensembles across the United States. She has served as music editor of Sing Out magazine and numerous folk song collections. With funding from the Smithsonian Institution, the International Research and Exchanges Board, the National Endowment for the Arts, and New York State Council on the Arts, Ms. Raim has conducted field research in the expressive folk traditions of urban American immigrant communities over the past 35 years. She was a researcher and program director for Balkan and Slavic cultures for the Smithsonian Institution s Folklife Festival, and in 1975 joined Martin Koenig as co-director of the Balkan Arts Center, which became the Ethnic Folk Arts Center and later changed its name to the Center for Traditional Music and Dance. Ms. Raim has curated and overseen the production of hundreds of artistic presentations and has developed many of the innovative program models for which the Center is best known, including the Center's Community Cultural Initiatives--long-term projects designed to establish and nurture community-based documentation, presentation and cultural preservation in New York's immigrant communities. Under the leadership of Ms. Raim the Center has become one of the United States's leading proponents of what the late Alan Lomax called "cultural equity," the right of every community or ethnic group to express and sustain its distinctive cultural heritage. www.ctmd.org.

Mark Slobin is Professor of Music at Wesleyan University since 1971 and the author or editor of 15 books, two of which--on Jewish music--have received the ASCAP-Deems Taylor Award: Fiddler on the Move: Exploring the Klezmer World and Tenement Songs: Popular Music of the Jewish Immigrants, while Chosen Voices: The Story of the American Cantorate was a Finalist for the National Jewish Book Award. His most recent book is Global Soundtracks: Worlds of Film Music (2008). He has been President of both the Society for Ethnomusicology and the Society for Asian Music.
