The Klezmatics are globally-renowned world music superstars — and the only klezmer band ever to win a Grammy award. They emerged out of the vibrant cultural scene of New York City’s East Village in 1986 playing klezmer steeped in Eastern European Jewish tradition and spirituality, while incorporating contemporary themes such as human rights and anti-fundamentalism, and eclectic musical influences including Arab, African, Latin and Balkan rhythms, jazz and punk.

Over the course of twenty-plus years and nine albums they have stubbornly continued making music that is wild, mystical, provocative, reflective, and ecstatically danceable.

Presented in partnership with the Jewish Studies Program at Purchase College.
