The Klezmatics, David Krakauer With Ancestral...

Event Date: 31/08/2017, 07:00 pm

This extraordinary double act is a one-of-a-kind occasion, not to be missed!
The Klezmatics erupted out of New York City’s East Village in 1986 and revitalized klezmer for the new century.
The sometimes frenzied, sometimes reflective - always danceable - music is steeped in Eastern European Jewish tradition and spirituality.
In The Klezmatics’ hands, it incorporates contemporary themes while blending the eclectic musical influences of
Arab, African, Latin and Balkan rhythms, jazz and punk.

They have collaborated with numerous musical luminaries including folk hero Arlo Guthrie, classical legend Itzhak Perlman, Israeli pop icons Chava Albertstein and Ehud Banay, beat poet Allen Ginsberg, The Master Musicians of Jajouka, the Ben Folds Five and ‘kosher gospel’ singer Joshua Nelson.
They’ve produced nine albums of provocative and ecstatic music, forever redefining and transcending traditional labels.

For over two decades, internationally celebrated clarinetist David Krakauer has been reinventing and remixing the Jewish music of his ancestry with the sensibility of a contemporary musician strongly informed by funk, jazz and hip-hop.

Starting with The Klezmatics, then recording on John Zorn’s Radical Jewish Culture imprint, Krakauer has forged an incomparable musical path that’s included landmark collaborations with funk legend Fred Wesley,
the Kronos Quartet, beat-wizard So called, leading symphony orchestras, rappers, celebrated composers and musicians of all kinds.
Krakauer’s band Ancestral Groove represents the next step in this unique musical evolution.
