Music from Romania and a few other places...

Art Bailey's Orkestra Popilar is a quintet consisting of accordion, two
violins, mandolin and bass that highlights both well-known and more obscure
klezmer tunes, as well as Bailey's own original compositions. The
repertoire is a mix of early 20th century Jewish fiddle pieces, original
compositions, improvisation, and features material originally recorded by
Romanian-born cymbalom master and Lower East Side restaurateur, Joseph
Moskowitz. Reminiscent of an earlier time in the history of recorded Jewish
music, the result is fresh, unique, and thoroughly engaging.
