WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The Klezmatics are globally-renowned world music superstars -- and the only klezmer band to win a Grammy award. The Klezmatics emerged out of the vibrant cultural scene of New York City's East Village in 1986 with klezmer steeped in Eastern European Jewish tradition and spirituality, while incorporating contemporary themes such as human rights and anti-fundamentalism and eclectic musical influences including Arab, African, Latin and Balkan rhythms, jazz and punk. In the course of over twenty years and nine albums they have stubbornly continued making music that is wild, mystical, provocative, reflective and ecstatically danceable.
