Ben Brussell’s Klezmania
Celebrate Chanukah with Ben Brussell’s high-energy klezmer band. Klezmer is a style of folk music from the Ashkenazic Jews in Eastern Europe. With rollicking dance tunes, and expressive “wails” like that of the human voice, it has always been celebratory music. When klezmer met American jazz, things really became fun. The group plays mandolin, voice, violin, saxophone, accordion, keyboard, guitar, bass, and drums, serving up some traditional sing-along Chanukah songs, Yiddish and Israeli folk songs, and original klezmer songs, as well. Wild and crazy fun.
