Klezmer-ish …. the music of the travellers
Monday 16 March 2020, 7.30 pm
From rip-roaring klezmer and dynamic tango, to their self-penned gypsy-jazz, Klezmer-ish bring a trademark twist to whatever genre takes their fancy. Klezmer-ish draw inspiration from the music of bygone travellers.
In their fittingly titled new album, Dusty Road, these four incredibly outward-looking classically trained musicians, who met whilst playing with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, free themselves from the “shackles” of the rigid hierarchy of the orchestra as they explore the music of immigrants from various cultural backgrounds who left their homelands in pursuit of a better life.
Bound together in the true spirit of intercultural exchange, their music is always on the move, like the travelling peoples that it reflects. The band bring in and out of focus each instrumental element to introduce an unusual sound world. This gives the music a fluidity and constantly changing dynamism unto its own, as the album takes you on a wide-ranging journey of musical styles from Klezmer, tango, gypsy-jazz and beyond.
Join us for an evening and musical journey through Klezmer, tangos, gypsy jazz, Irish fiddle music.
