CONTEXT

19:00 - Master Talk: A Listener’s Guide to Radical & Traditional Klezmer: introduction by The Klezmatics (EN), Salle M  

Members of The Klezmatics play examples of both traditional and their own style of klezmer and Yiddish music. They will also teach you Yiddish songs, introduce their new recording, Apikorsim/Heretics and discuss their 30 Years of working towards tikkun olam (healing the world) through progressive Yiddish music and politics.


The New York group the Klezmatics is one of the icons of the contemporary klezmer scene. Headed by the saxophonist Frank London, the group combines jazz, folk, rock, gospel, avant-garde and classical. A revival of the music played by roaming Jewish musicians in Eastern Europe during the previous century. A combination of traditional tunes and selections from its own repertoire. The Klezmatics will enthral you with their authentic festive music, underpinned by a jubilant clarinet, a weeping violin, the sensual voice of Lorin Sklamberg and a smoking hot rhythm section.
