Two Concerts in One Night in South Florida: YidLife Crisis and Kosha Dillz

Presented by Dr. Bruce and Lesley Zafran

YidLife Crisis Presents YIdLive!

Jamie & Eli, the creators of YidLife Crisis are coming to YOU for an evening of comedy, music and thought-provoking shtick. The boychiks from Montreal present their unique take on the modern Jewish experience in a hilarious (G-d willing) multimedia presentation, including video and live music. No need to be Jewish nor knowledge of Yiddish required. Sense of humor requested. Appropriate for ages 18* – 118 (*OK, fine, anyone over Bar/Bat Mitzvah)

Kosha Dillz in Concert

Kosha Dillz rhymes in Yiddish and Hebrew, in addition to English and Spanish, and his raps about matzah and Passover have gone viral. He has recently toured with Jewish performers Matisyahu and Nissim Black and he is currently appearing on VH1’s “Wild and Out.”

Rami Even-Esh started rapping at the age of 17. For several years beginning in 1999, he was heavily involved with the freestyle battle rap scene at Nuyorican Poets Café in New York City. That same year, he attended an MF Doom concert at The Wetlands, and recalls, “That’s when I knew I loved the underground hip hop scene. That show and Braggin’ Rights at Nuyorican Poets Café changed my life for sure.”

YI Love YiddishFest ‘22 is sponsored by Dr. Bruce and Lesley Zafran of Parkland and GFour Productions, and is cosponsored by the Sue and Leonard Miller Center for Contemporary Judaic Studies/George Feldenkreis Program in Judaic Studies at the University of Miami, The Betsy South Beach, Miami Beach JCC and the Adolph, Rose Levis JCC, MNM Theatre Company, Mo’s Deli, Miami New Times, Center for the Advancement of Jewish Education, Florida Atlantic University and the Yiddish Theatre Alliance with the support of Broward County Cultural Council, the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and the Cultural Affairs Council, the Miami-Dade County Mayor and Board of County Commissioners and is sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs, the Florida Council on Arts and Culture.

He originally went by Kosher Dill, saying, “I was Jewish and I wanted something cool.” He changed his name to KD Flow when he was in the battle scene because he was “ashamed” of his MC name’s Jewish association. After some time, he became Kosha Dillz, coinciding with a decision to return to his Jewish identity.

The 4th Annual YI Love Yiddishfest ’22 is a six-day extravaganza of concerts, plays, films, lectures and contemporary Jewish headliners such as YidLife Crisis, Kosha Dillz, Avi Hoffman and The Stars of David. With over 12 events, there’s something for the entire mishpukhe to enjoy!
