ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
It’s here! “I Love To Sing” Music of the Ugandan Jews. The second CD recorded in the village of Putti by producer and musician Mike Cohen is available for download.
Consisting of 10 new songs all sung by the choir from Putti, this CD is a continuation of the beautiful melodies that were captured on the first CD “When I Wake Up. Music form Putti”.
In 2012, Cohen along with engineer Ernest Adzentoivich and PVAO executive director David Epstein traveled back to Putti. After rehearsing for a few days, they set up shop at the Mt Elgon Hotel and recorded the CD in 2 sessions. Released in time for Hanukah, this music, while East African in geography, is also inherently Jewish and pushes the envelope for how one envisions Jewish Music in the 21st century. Available at CDbaby, amazon and iTunes all proceeds benefit the village through the Putti Village Assistance Organization.




From Mike Cohen (producer): It was a long road getting this project finished. After an 18-hour flight, we had an additional 6-hour car ride just to get to Putti. We went to the village, and after greeting old friends we got right to work. We rehearsed the new music and worked out our arrangements and then set to recording. With engineer Ernest Adzentoivich on site, we were able to avoid the pitfalls encountered during the first CD (like only having one mic available and a 20 year old computer). Once we got the masters back to the States, the work continued. Thanks to the generosity of master musicians Jim Mussen (percussion), Brian Glassman (bass), Dave Solomon (guitar). Mike Cohen (flute saxes and clarinet and other sundry items) and special guest Binyomin Ginzburg (vibrandonean on L’cha Dodi) we added another layer to the rich melodies that were created in Africa. It was my goal to create a richer pallet of colors under the voices, not detract from all of their great singing and I think we achieved that. I am truly proud of the recording
