Metropolitan Klezmer will play a live concert, featuring music from far-flung styles of an exuberant, eclectic Yiddish cultural milieu: Rollicking dance tunes, haunting trance melodies, Yiddish swing and tango, and genre-expanding original compositions such as klezmer cumbia. Presented by LMCC.
Established in 1994, Metropolitan Klezmer 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… an exhilarating journey!
