Shira – Czardas Cover (Live in Studio)


Songs are either made for vocals or instruments, some are made for both!

And then there is Czardas (Chardash, Csรกrdรกs), a layered, time-shifting composition that presents a technical struggle even for skilled instrumentalists.

But, then again, there is also Shira.

A rhapsodical concert piece written for an ensemble of violins and piano, Czardas has been a Hungarian cultural signature for over 100 years.

For the first time ever, this iconic piece is done justice in pure a cappella form.

No instruments.

No time adjustments.

No digital malarkey.

You may want to sit down for this:

Shiraโ€™s vocal musicians fly across the gamut from cantorial to klezmer to folk to freilach without missing a beat. Or tempo change. Or tonal pitch.

There is no string section here, but every staccato, thrum, and chromatic slide is present and perfect.
