The Possessed Jews with Horns are Back!

The Klezmatics are known for blurring the lines of tradition with a modern sonic aesthetic. From ecstatic songs of praise to Yiddish carnival songs, from a kick-ass workers' march to slamming klezmer tunes old, new, frantic and mysterious, The Klezmatics rise up once again on their latest outing-Rise up! Shteyt Oyf! (Rounder) - continuing the unlikely combination of ancient shtetl party music with an innovative consciousness that could only arise from the experimental and intellectual East Village.

"The Klezmer revival of the 1980s was still young when the Klezmatics exploded onto the scene, shaking up Eastern European Jewish folk with jazz and world-music influences. Seventeen years later, it's impossible to imagine the genre without them...their music remains as deeply compassionate as it is invigorating, as accessible as it is virtuosic." - Time Out NY
