About the project:

83 years after it was first performed in New York’s Yiddish theater district, the iconic song Belz is revitalized, this time being performed by a pair of musicians who were schoolboys when it first debuted in 1932.
Saul Dreier and Ruby Sosnowicz, better known to their legions of adoring fans of all ages as the Holocaust Survivor Band, capture the soul of Belz with their distinctive flair and equally impressive talent in this Sparks Next video starring Lipa Schmeltzer.
