This episode is dedicated to the earthquake victims in Haiti. A musical response to the earthquake was the Sound Off For Haiti festival, organized by Jessica Valiente, a New York City- based musician of the band Los Mas Valientes. We also hear from Metropolitan Klezmer Band members Eve Sicular and Debra Kreisberg.
