Album Remarks & Appraisals:

A popular Jewish music quartet from London, Shir are commonly called a klezmer group, but describe themselves as playing “Complete Jewish Music” – Israeli, Ladino, Yiddish, Mizrahi, Sephardi, simcha as well as klezmer and even liturgical, and do not consider themselves pinned down to any one style. ‘From The Heart’ features a soulful selection of Jewish Ashkenazi folk music, from energetic Klezmer instrumentals to story-laden Yiddish songs via synagogue prayers to the optimism of early Israeli songs. Shir’s music is the story of the Jews of Eastern Europe.
