1. Dona Dona

From the recording Dona Dona

<p><span style="font-size: medium;"><span style="font-family: 'arial black', gadget, sans-serif;">A rock-ballad version of the Yiddish classic, "Dona Dona." &nbsp;In this recording the first two verses are sung in English, and the final verse is sung in its original Yiddish.<br /><br />I grew up singing the ENGLISH version made popular by Joan Baez at summer camp. It wasn't until I was an adult and discovered Eastern European Jewish Music (= often referred to as "Klezmer" music) and started studying Yiddish that I learned that the song was actually originally written in Yiddish for the Yiddish Theatre.&nbsp;</span></span></p>
