Les Mentsh / Finzi mozaique ensemble, Paris, France, 7 Dec 2012

Deuxième week end à l'Entrepôt du FESTIVAL KLEZMER KAOS !

Friday, Dec 7, 2012, 21:00h
L'entrepôt - Musique
7/9, rue Francis de Pressenssé,
75014 Paris

Cette fois-ci les festivités commencent avec les MENTSH, un duo fidèle à la tradition de voyage et de fête, qui fait revivre cette musique de l’âme et la réinterprète avec fougue, énergie, malice et liberté. Le public est transporté dans un univers inversé et farfelu. Les émotions se mélangent entre euphorie et recueillement.

En deuxième partie de soirée, l'Entrepôt accueille FINZI MOSAIQUE ENSEMBLE, une nouvelle formation issue de la scène tsigano-orientale parisienne, qui interprète des musiques issues des balkans. Un spectacle ou se mêle danse, chant et musique. L’orchestre, formé par des musiciens d’origines cosmopolites (France, Roumanie, Turquie, Espagne), donne une nouvelle vie à ces répertoires traditionnels.

David Krakauer at Helsinki Klezmer Fest, Oct 25

Helsinki Klezmer Festival, the festival of traditional instrumental music of the Yiddish-speaking people is organized for the third time already in Finland. Savoy Theatre as its venue, the event aims to make klezmer music better known in general and to give people a possibility to get to know one of the Europes most interesting cultural traditions. Klezmer music has its roots in the medieval Europe, where the Jewish people of the Eastern Europe traveled from town to town in order to play in weddings and other events. By the end of the 18th century klezmer music had become a well-developed music style, gathering influences from the Jewish culture and from outside of it.

Nowadays klezmer music is played almost all around the world, but mostly in the United States and in Europe. Klezmer music is constantly evolving and mixing with other music styles such as jazz and pop music. In order for the style to survive it is still important that there are also bands trying to find out the origins of klezmer music and ways to maintain it as authentic as possible. The authenticity of the music will not bring back the culturally rich community that once lived in the Eastern Europe but will give the listeners a possibility to get a bit closer look at the life of the society that lived at that time.

Sat 25 October 2003 at 7 p.m.
David Krakauer Klezmer Madness! (United States)

Virtuoso clarinet player David Krakauer from New York is one of the most influential names in the new Klezmer music scene, blending contemporary jazz into his music.

The concerts will be performed at the Savoy Theatre (Kasarmikatu 46-48). In addition to concerts the program of Helsinki Klezmer Festival will include evening clubs that are held at Kunsthalle Helsinki (Nervanderinkatu 3) right after the music performances.

First International Klezmer Fest, Moscow, Russian, Feb 17-20

The first international klezmer event in Moscow will take place February 17th-20th.

The idea of this event came from the Jewish ensemble "Dona" (Moscow) and their producer Anatoly Pinsky, so the seminar has also become known as "Dona-Fest". The festival will bring together more then 60 musicians from the former USSA and Europe. The gala concert of the First International Festival of Jewish music in Moscow will consist of completely new material which will be prepared during the 3 days of seminar. It will take place at the Jewish Theatre Shalom.

The leading teachers of the event are Merlin Shepherd (world known klezmer musician, who has developed a unique method of teaching klezmer instrumentalists by ear) and Polina Shepherd (leading Jewish choir composer in the former USSR who bases her vocal teaching on instrumental ornamentation and Jewish modes).

Amongst the organisers and teachers there will be representatives of the "old" Yiddish tradition (Arkady Gendler, Ukraine) and of the newest generation of Russian and ex-Russian klezmorim (Mark Kovnatsky, Germany; Alina Ivakh, Kazan; Alexey Rozov, Evgenya Slavina, Moscow).

Now in Moscow ­ Celebration of Yiddishkeit!

KlezmerQuerque Jewish Music Festival, Albuquerque, NM, 12-15 Feb 2009

“KLEZMERQUERQUE” Albuquerque New Mexico’s annual Klezmer music and dance festival celebrates its seventh year February 12-15, 2009 (Presidents Day weekend).
On Saturday morning, February 14th from 9:30am-11:00am the Strauss Warschauer Duo will lead “SHABBOS, MUSIC AND YIDDISH”, a hands-on workshop of Hassidic Niggunim (melodies) and Yiddish Sabbath songs for singers and instrumentalists. No previous experience necessary. All ages, levels and backgrounds welcome. Brin Ingber will teach dances from the Eastern European Jewish wedding repertoire including Rebbe Elimelech tanz and Kayzad merakdim. Classes cost $20-general and $16 for seniors, students and fixed income. From noon-2pm there will be a catered lunch. After the catered luncheon Brin Ingber will present "Why Jews Aren't Just People of the Book" with rare and historic dance illustrations and music for Jewish dance in far flung communities through the ages. Following her powerpoint presentation there will be time for questions. The price for the ‘Lunch ‘n Presentation’ is an $8-$15 suggested donation.

On Saturday afternoon from 2:15pm-3:45pm the Duo will lead “MAKING YOUR INSTRUMENT SING IN YIDDISH”, a hands-on workshop for everyone. Again, all are welcome. Price for this class is $20-general admission and $16 for seniors, students and fixed income.

On Saturday evening at 7pm Brin Ingber will perform two dances. “The Argument” gives a modern twist to the classic story of Abraham about to sacrifice his son Isaac. The dance will be accompanied by the chanting of Brin Ingber’s sister Rabbi Deborah Brin, who is also the Rabbi of Congregation Nahalat Shalom. “Roles Not Taken” a dance combining music theatre, ballet and Israeli folk dance presents a surprising view on issues of Jewish identity. The evening culminates with a concert by the Strauss/Warschauer Duo, “Dem Fideles Neshome” (The Fiddle’s Soul) and a dance party. Brin Ingber will also lead dances that she taught in her morning class. Price for this event is $18-in advance and $20-general, $18-seniors and students at the door.

The 20-piece intergenerational Nahalat Shalom Community Klezmer band will be celebrating the release of its first full length CD recorded and engineered by New Mexico’s own Manny Rettinger of Ubik sound and the sound engineer for UNM’s music department.

Ars Caramelis Festival (Katowice ,Pologne) : 25 novembre 2009
NEW KLEZMER MUSIC and IT ROCK’S !!!

Kabbalah déboule comme une comète dans le paysage musical actuel et crée à l’évidence un son nouveau.

Au melting pot de la cité phocéenne, antique carrefour des langues et des cultures, Kabbalah abreuve sa musique d’autant de tradition que de modernité, d’autant d’Orient que d’Occident. Ces 5 virtuoses réunissent ainsi en un même univers, musique klezmer, hip-hop, chants hassidiques et spoken word.

All Star New York Yiddish Sing-along, New York, NY, 12 October, 2010

The next All Star New York Yiddish Sing-along will take place on Tuesday, October 12, at 7:30pm at Congregation Rodeph Sholom, 7 West 83rd Street.

This will be the third such event in recent years led by the inimitable artistic director of the National Yiddish Theater - Folksbiene Zalmen Mlotek. The large audiences that attended the earlier two Yiddish Sing-alongs found themselves in the warm embrace of a heymish community sharing songs that evoked memories of a vibrant Yiddish speaking world, and connections to its glorious culture. The high percentage of younger participants was yet another sign that Yiddish is very much alive and will be part of the New York experience for generations to come.

This year's line-up of singers includes some of our most popular performers of Jewish music - artists who travel the world, and perform in a wide range of musical genres: Cantor Bob Abelson, Phyllis Berk, Joanne Borts, Adrienne Cooper, Magda Fishman, Cantor Rebecca Garfein, Annette Ezekiel Kogan, Avram Mlotek, Avram Pengas, Daniella Rabbani, Basya Schechter, Di Shekhter Tekhter, Cantor Dan Singer, Zalmen Mlotek's Yiddish Singers, The Folksbiene Troupe, The Jewish People's Philharmonic Chorus/yidisher filharmonisher folks khor, under the musical direction of Binyumen Schaechter - and some special surprise performers

There will be a Klezmer band accompanying the concert - with some of our finest musicians, including Margot Leverett, Marty Confurius, Matt Temking and others.

Every song will be available in transliteration so that every audience member will be able to fully participate and fill the glorious sanctuary of Congregation Rodeph Sholem with the sounds of Mame-loshn. Our emcee will be that debonair Yiddishist from Avantura - Corey Breier.

The concert is presented by Golden Land Concerts & Connections, with support from the National Yiddish Theater - Folksbiene, The Workmen's Circle/ Arbeter-Ring, League for Yiddish/Afn Shvel, Yugntruf, Congregation Rodeph Sholom, Congress for Jewish Culture, Yiddish Artists & Friends/ Actors Club/Yiddish Theatrical Alliance.

General admission tickets are $20 if purchased in advance, and $22 on the day of the concert. VIP reserved seating, with a post concert wine reception sponsored by City Winery, will be $50 if purchased in advance, and $60 on the day of the concert. Group rates - 15 or more tickets - 20% discount if purchased in advance.

For more information visit www.goldenland.com or call 212-683-7816. There is a Facebook evet called "Golden Land's Third Annual All Star New York Yiddish Sing-along. Please join us and help spread the word.

Le combo, qui s'appuie sur une solide rythmique basse batterie, est porté par une guitare Fretless, qui donne des sonorités à la fois puissantes et sensibles, deux caractères qui s'expriment ensemble tout au long des créations et des improvisations.

Balkan Beat Box par du style klezmer et lui administre une bonne dose d'électro. Ori Kaplan (saxophone) forme le groupe en 2004 à New York, Balkan Beat Box est remarqué dès sa sortie en 2005. Il faut dire que la fusion de Balkan Beat Box sait intégrer des éléments multiples, pour en faire une musique dansante, joyeuse et originale. Blue Eyed Back Boy sort en mars 2010 pour que l'aventure continue et que la fusion soit belle.

festival posterC'est sur scène que leur musique prend toute son ampleur. Les musiciens se livrent à 300%, hurlent, dansent, parlent des langues inconnues, se battent en duel. Pad Brapad allie l'énergie de l'Est aux beats de l'Ouest pour une ambiance chaude et festive... Un livre volcanique qui vous emmène loin!

From Jeff Warschauer to the Jewish Music list:

Come to the Jewish Culture Festival in Krakow this summer!

22nd Jewish Culture Festival in Krakow, 2012

Yiddish Song Workshop: Answering the Big Questions Through Yiddish Songs

We all confront the big questions: What is the meaning of life? Why are we here? What shall we have for Shabbes lunch? And Yiddish songs attempt to answer these kinds of questions, too! Each year, a wonderful, international community comes together in Krakow to sing, dance, learn and have fun. All are welcome, with no previous experience necessary. Join us!

Westport Radical Jewish Culture Festival: Bop Kabbalah
(upcoming Tzadik release Spring 2014)

Sat, Dec 21, 2013, 8pm
Beit Chaverim Synagogue of Westport
85 Post Rd West
Westport, CT

This new series at Rabbi Greg Wall's Beit Chaverim synagogue in Westport, CT, will present exciting performances by the most cutting-edge performers in Jewish music today.

Led by guitarist and composer Ty Citerman, Bop Kabbalah plays rhyth­mic, dynamic and lyri­cal music that takes some of the lan­guage of klezmer, modal nig­gu­nim, jazz, and 21st cen­tury con­cert music…and then twists and recon­tex­tu­al­izes it. It’s not really what you’d hear in most syn­a­gogues or at most wed­dings, but of course, those aren’t the only places to hear Jew­ish music!
with:
Ty Citerman - guitar
Ben Holmes - trumpet
Ken Thomson - bass clarinet
Adam Gold - drums
