Brief News

Jewish Week, Jan 3-19, 2018
Metropolitan Klezmer and Isle of Klezbos "bring their rollicking neo-trad sound, with forays into downtown, classical and world music, to the City Winery’s Sunday klezmer brunch. It’s an Old-World groove brought to Soho."

Cinema Arts Centre kicked off its Jewish Film Series with "MUSIC FROM YIDDISH CINEMA" featuring Metropolitan Klezmer octet, led by film maven & drummer Eve Sicular. The multi-media concert, dubbed "Mazel Trove" by Long Island's Newsday, drew a thrilled full house.

Metropolitan Klezmer's Colorado debut at JAAMM Festival filled Mizel Arts & Culture Center in Denver.

Falcon Ridge Folk Festival debut — Metropolitan Klezmer's performances were first time in the beloved Festival's 28 years that Yiddish music was featured! We performed on both the Main Stage and (with dance leader Avia Moore) the Dance Stage.

Metropolitan Klezmer

METROPOLITAN KLEZMER, established in 1994, brings eclectic exuberance to Yiddish musical genres from all over the map. Performing vibrant versions of lesser-known gems from wedding dance, trance, folk, swing and tango styles, as well as soundtrack material from vintage Yiddish films, they re-invent tradition with both irreverence and respect.

Our special projects include: Music From Yiddish Cinema and Di Fire Korbunes — Yiddish ballads of the Triangle Fire.

Check out our sister sextet Isle of Klezbos, and ongoing projects Yiddish Celluloid Closet and J.EdgarKlezmer: Songs from my Grandmother's FBI Files.
