Daniel Kahn

Daniel Kahn, musician, born and raised in Detroit. He studied theatre and poetry and made a name for himself from New Orleans to New York as a singer, musician, actor, director, composer and songwriter. In 2005 he moved to Berlin and assembled his band »The Painted Bird«, with which he has produced four albums and received numerous honours, including the annual German Record Critics' Award. He co-founded the supergroup »The Brothers Nazaroff«, »The Disorientalists« and »Semer Ensemble«. At the Maxim Gorki Theatre he works as a director/writer (Genghis Cohn), composer and songwriter (Feinde, Angst Essen Seele Auf, Glaube Liebe Hoffnung Enemies, Fear Eat Soul Up, Faith, Hope, and Charity), music curator (»unterternational«) and actor. He played Biff in Death of a Salesman in Yiddish at an Off-Broadway theatre in New York and Menuchim in Josef Roth's Hiob (Job) at Dresden's state theatre. In the current 2023/24 season, his musical accompaniment enriches the play Muttersprache Mameloschn, directed by Hakan Savaş Mican.


He is a co-founder of the annual Yiddish cultural festival Shtetl Neukölln, which took place at the WdK in December 2017.
