KLEZMANIA is a long running (born 1993) riot of a band, breaking down genres and styles in its path, filling the room with energy and passion whenever they play.
Long regarded as one of Australia’s foremost musical outfits, they bring to their dynamic instrumentals and songs the sounds of klezmer, blues, ska, Gypsy swing and waltzes, jazz, Australian folk music, romantic ballads, whirling frenetic traditional dance tunes and more.
They carry the audience along an emotional journey and break down language barriers through engaging explanations of the Yiddish songs.
…just to add that one of the bar-mitzvah students told me and the others that ‘The Klezmania concert was the best thing – absolutely brilliant!’
