Often called a “Jewish roots band,” The Klezmatics have been playing — and celebrating — the heritage of Eastern European Jewish music and Yiddish culture for more than 25 years. Although tradition is at the core of what they do, the Klezmatics have developed a unique musical hybrid, rooted in the klezmer genre but very much of the modern world. Not familiar with klezmer? No worries. Previous experience is not required in order to be transported by the Klezmatics to another place and time.
