Morgan Bassichis's Instagram in The New York Times

"Morgan Bassichis always brings the same generous energy to a performance, whether it’s a self-reflective stand-up set or leading a crowd in Yiddish protest songs. But nothing I’ve seen has been quite as charming or perfectly formed as the “quarantunes” that this performance artist has been posting since mid-March. These snippets of song — delivered in tight close-up and accompanied by an electronic keyboard — encompass a full range of pandemic reactions, though always with a comic veneer. One assures some of our more negligent political leaders, “Our grandmothers will eat you alive”; another simply asks, “How was your day?” Altogether they offer quick-action doses of common humanity."
