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!

KAILA Jazz Zoom

Online event

If you have ever been to a Piano bar or a local Jazz club and wished you could play along with the musicians, then KAILA JAZZ ZOOM Workshop is for you. Led by Gustavo Bulgach (Former member of the House of Blues International House Jazz Band ) we are musicians of differing abilities and instruments, drawn together to "stretch our chops" and play Classical Jazz. Come join us at our next KAILA JAZZ ZOOM Workshop and play Classical Jazz along with Gustavo. Jazz Workshops will be on the first Thursday of every month, at 11am Pacific Time. Our next Jazz Workshop will be on Dec 3, 2020. We will play from the REAL Books, Vol 1, or other tunes posted on KAILA JAZZ ONLINE. If you have a special request send us the charts and we'll try to work them in. New members are welcome! This is a class, not a jam session. Although this event is free, we would appreciate donations to keep our Institute afloat during this difficult time. We will post Venmo and Paypal links at the Meetup on Sunday. Anything you can donate is appreciated!! Thank you!! Due to Covid 19 we will hold this session on Zoom.
