An Interview On The History and The Story Behind Jewish A Cappella

Sameach music has been recently getting a lot of emails and phone calls at about what goes into creating an a cappella album. Many people are wondering how the background vocals sound so much like the real thing. Many people are asking if this type of music is even appropriate for Sefirah. Some people are just curious about the history behind Jewish a cappella and why this style became so popular in Jewish music.

To answer these and other questions, Sruly Meyer e-mailed Mr. Jordan B. Gorfinkel and asked him to come online and have a discussion about these topics via Instant Message. they recorded it for everyone else to read and hopefully you will learn a few new things. Jordan, has produced and/or sung in many of the most popular a cappella albums out today.
