Klezzics is a klezmer monthly event created in 2004 by Eleonore Biezunski (fiddler and student in geography and Jewish studies) and Gabriel Siancas (clarinettist, tuba player and student in social sciences) in Paris, allowing performers to present klezmer-related and experimental musical works to a wider audience. Since its creation, Klezzics has invited more than twenty different bands, in a very welcoming venue, "Les Trois Arts" located in the 20th Arrondissement of Paris. Marthe Desrosieres (flutist, picolo player, clarinettist and leader of the klezmer programs at the Maison de la Culture Yiddish) joined us up in 2005, bringing her experience and knowledge to our project.

Klezzics also publishes a newsletter announcing the gigs of the bands that played on this scene to our list. Each concert is also aimed to provoke encounters between musicians and followed by a jam session.

The entrance is free (suggested donation : 5 Euros)
Traditional homemade (by Marthe) Ashkenaz Pastries are sometimes available !
