Originally established in 2002 as a small project dedicated to the preservation of recorded Jewish music, it has matured into a robust digitization operation for all types of sound recordings.

Notes Sidor Belarsky's assured smiling manner reveals at once a profound intimacy with the music and an open devoutness to its text. Such qualities of course, are better reflected in the awe of his audiences than by mere words.
From prayer to coachman's song, Sidor Belarsky interprets these myriad ballads in a style elastic and clear.

Recordings restricted by copyright will only play 45 seconds to give you a sense of what that recording originally sounded like. These recordings can be identified by the words (Research Station) in the music player.
