KLEZMER Music & Dance

Music&Dance from parts of Europe( Eastern, Central ).

Originally folkloric from a number of countries including present day Israel, Russia, Poland, Hungary, Romania, Belarus,
Czech Republic, Slovakia, even Spain, the music is passionate, spirited, robust, even political. It has recently been revived by leading musical groups in the U.S. and Europe. In January, the Grammy award winning band, the Klezmatics, often referred to as the original ” Jewish Roots” band ( 11 albums, an award winning documentary ), performed  at NYC’s Town Hall, sponsored by the Eldridge Street Synagogue and presented by The World Music Institute, an organization located in NYC, now in its 30th year, and who’s design is to present major international groups in music and dance to NYC audiences at all levels and at
various locations including Symphony Space, Lincoln Center, the Apollo Theater, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, et. al.
