Born out of a musical tradition of Ashkenazi Jews, klezmer music draws its largest influences from Romanian, Greek, Ukrainian, Polish, and Turkish music. The genre evolved considerably in the US where Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe merged their own musical traditions with those of American jazz. Typical klezmer instruments include clarinet, accordion, upright bass and violin, as well as trombone, trumpet, piano and hammered dulcimer. The repertoire of these concerts includes instrumental pieces connected with the folklore of Reform Judaism and songs performed in Yiddish which belong to the tradition of Orthodox Judaism. The klezmorim (Klezmer musicians) have the ability to evoke all kinds of emotions, from joy to despair, and meditation to drunkenness, all of it wrapped in the Jewish incredible sense of humour! The concerts take place every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
