: KLEZMER KLUBWhen
: Friday, October 22,[masked]:45 PMWhere
: St Ethelburga's Centre
Our next gig at St Ethelburga's on Oct 22nd will be
song, dance and wedding music both wild and tender from;
Yiddish songs about London in the early 1900s are a rarity, but have been collected and arranged by
the band and tell of immigrants, poverty, prostitutes, street sellers with warmth, irony, anger and humour.
Klezmer is, at its heart, dance music, wedding music, both wild and tender.
Played by the Klezmorim as they tramped the roads of eastern Europe it is a
music that gets to your heart by way of your feet. Often described as
bitter-sweet, it came out of poverty and oppression. Both dances and song
contain joy, exhilaration and wit alongside the sadness, anger and defiance.
Freylekhs, bulgars, horas, hongas, sers ? these are thumping dance tunes
that would have been played at 'simkhes' (celebrations) in Eastern European
'shtetls' (Jewish villages) for hundreds of years. Whilst respecting the
tradition, the bitter-sweet sound that is klezmer, we bring them to life
from our own perspective of modern day life in London , with all the
inter-cultural mixing that goes with it.http://www.myspace.com/klezmerklub
