Somerville, MA 9/23/03 ĖĖ Johnny Dís, in association with the Polish Cultural Institute in New York, presents first Bostonís concerts of The Cracow Klezmer Band, on Wednesday, October 8 at 8:30 pm and 10:00 pm. This innovative ensemble from Cracow, Poland takes the traditions of klezmer music, with all its wild and festive roots, and turns it into thoughtful and virtuostic performance art. In an era in which many bands exaggerate and vulgarize, this group is headed in the other direction, creating original compositions and intricate inprovisations based on particular elements of klezmer. This will be their first time in Boston! "Of all the ensembles that have emerged in recent years to explore the meaning of klezmer in a new era, few have reached as high as the Cracow Klezmer Band, and fewer still have attained comparable results."- Chicago Tribune.

The Cracow Klezmer Band is: Jaroslaw Bester, accordion; Jaroslaw Tyrala, violin; Oleg Dyyak, accordion, clarinet and percussion; and Wojciech Front, double bass.
