What is Klezmer?

Klezmer is the musical voice of Eastern European jewry. Its poignant melodies, joyous dance tunes, and soulful chants capture the essence of life in the Jewish community. Klezmer celebrates births, weddings, funerals, and all the joys and hardships in between.
The Old World Folk Band’s repertoire takes you from Russia and Europe to North America, from traditional to present-day songs, from theater to folksong. In their hands, this music really does cross new borders.
