Klezmer is a musical tradition of the Ashkenazic Jews of Eastern Europe.
It is, at its heart, dance music, wedding music, both wild and tender. Played by the Klezmorim as they tramped the roads of eastern Europe it is a music that gets to your heart by way of your feet. Often described as bitter-sweet, it came out of poverty and oppression. Both dances and song contain joy, exhilaration and wit alongside the sadness, anger and defiance. and largely consists of dance tunes and instrumental display pieces for weddings and other celebrations.
And we've got a whole evening of it!
