Daniel Kahn and The Painted Bird (Germany/US)



Late Night NOW presented by Heineken


Michigan-bred, Berlin-based Daniel Kahn presents a rebellious and satirical brand of edgy original Yiddish music. The young upstart has brought his theatrical, cabaret-style show to punk clubs, theatres, festivals and shtetls, from Berlin, Krakow, Minsk & Moscow to Detroit, Boston, New York & New Orleans. Kahn’s musical mantra mirrors the grotesque Jerzy Kozinski novel for which he’s named his group - reminding us that “even if man is only an animal, he can still sing.”
