Yoshie & Chaim Fruchter

Buy This Album

This father and son duo has put together an album of folk-rock "story-songs" about biblical personalities. Each song is written in the voice of a different biblical character, giving them thoughts and feelings that preschoolers (and the rest of us) can identify with. You don't have to guess the identity of each singer--but you can. It's an album and a game! "Wake Up Jacob," is sung by Jacob's mother, Rebecca. The rest you'll have to figure out.

Yoshie lives in Brooklyn and regularly hosts singalongs in the area, so for those of you in New York, you can even catch him live, often performing with his sister, Ora, a puppeteer.
