The Klezmatics

Joyously unconventional Eastern European Jewish music, steeped in tradition and spirituality while incorporating contemporary lyrical themes, world rhythms, jazz and punk in a mix that’s wild, mystical, provocative, reflective, and ecstatically danceable.

In their 35 years, the Klezmatics have raised the bar for Eastern European Jewish music. Often called a “Jewish roots band,” the Klezmatics have led a popular revival of this ages-old, nearly forgotten art form.

They’ve created a catalog that is aesthetically, politically and musically interesting. They’ve inspired future generations, and helped to change the face of contemporary Yiddish culture. Not bad for a bunch of Americans who each came to klezmer music almost by accident!
