Pete Seeger and the Story of “Tzena, Tzena, Tzena”

The Milken Archive of Jewish Music remembers Pete Seeger and his legacy in this short documentary on the song, “Tzena, Tzena, Tzena.” A moving story of music’s ability to transcend boundaries and communicate universally, the video captures a rare moment featuring Seeger alongside the song’s composer, Issachar Miron, as they lead a performance of a new trilingual version of the song that includes verses in Arabic, as well as in Hebrew and English. The song’s history stands as a testament to the values Seeger espoused through his music and through his unique way of being in the world. In the words of Woody Guthrie: “So Long, It’s Been Good to Know You.”
