What we're about

Introducing Klezmer Arts Institute of LA (KAILA) – “ One foot on tradition and the other on the now “

Led by Gustavo Bulgach (leader of “Klezmer Juice,” an internationally recognized Klezmer band)

We are a group of musicians of differing musical abilities and instruments, drawn together by the common desire to play and learn about the history, rhythms, scales and modes of Klezmer music and have fun.

If you have ever been to a Jewish Wedding or Bar/Bat Mitzvah and wished you could play this traditional Eastern European Music – Klezmer, Then KAILA is for you!

Gustavo will continue with his unique "Freylach Approach" to Klezmer and end with a time to schmooze with the other Klezmorim. This is a class, not a jam session. In order to cover our expenses, cost will be a $20 per person per session or $50 for three sessions 6/2, 6/9, 6/30 if paid by 6/2. (no one will be turned away for lack of funds) Payment options will be available at the Meetup including cash, check, Venmo and credit card. Please message us to let us know what instrument you play.
