Los Angeles Klezmer Band style

Klezmer is a music for dancing and celebrating. Although its roots are in the wedding dance music of the Jewish Shtetl communities of Eastern Europe, as a living evolving folk tradition, it has always drawn the music of its surrounding cultures into itself giving it new vitality, diversity and depth. Klezmer has always been an amalgamation of Jewish Cantorial music, Eastern European folk music, Gypsy, Greek, Turkish and Persian Music. This Los Angeles Klezmer Band carries on this rich multi-cultural tradition by incorporating the diverse musical styles of its members into the traditional klezmer repertoire as well as adding to that repertoire through original compositions and new interpretations of traditional material.
