KlezSka, NYC, May 12

Klezmer/Ska Music
Admission $15 - Please purchase tickets at the door

Klezska. Skavanagila Baby! Described as "the klezmer of Kingston" by klezmer author Seth Rogavoy. This is their fifth appearance at Satalla begining with the club's opening night of live music. Klezska combines the music, melodies and rhythms of Jewish and Israeli music with the style and substance of traditional Jamaican genres from early ska through rock-steady reggae and dancehall. The core of musicians include: Mike Severino (drums) - Blaaka (bassey) - Original Smurph (guitar, vocals) - Chava Mirel (vocals, melodica, guitar, keyboards) - Glenn Tamir (percussion, keyboards, vocals). Other special guests are always present, some who have performed with leading reggae groups like Burning Spear, the Skatalites, Big Mountain and Culture. A spiritual gathering between two culures that know how to party! Please join us.
