Metropolitan Klezmer performs an exhilarating range of musical treasure with

astonishing agility and refreshing depth. Formed in 1994, this collaborative

adventure of exceptional New York musicians combines the best of downtown,

classical and World Music scenes to create inspired neo-traditional interpretations

and compositions around a panoply of eclectic Yiddish repertoire: ethereal trance,

rollicking dance, imaginatively-arranged Yiddish swing and tango, plus genre-

expanding originals such as klezmer cumbia.

Metropolitan Klezmer bandmates bring together stylistic backgrounds from Latin

jazz to funk and folk, zydeco and reggae to baroque, complete with panoramic

instrumental array and multi-lingual vocals. Led by drummer-archivist Eve Sicular,

the ensemble also explores such lesser-known gems as Soviet Yiddish theater

melodies and drinking songs, gorgeous overlooked soundtrack tunes from vintage

films set in Eastern Europe and the Lower East Side, and unexpected musical angles

which transform familiar favorites from the inside out. Time Out New York extols

the group: “Metropolitan Klezmer takes a scholarly approach to the genre’s history,

yet never skimps on the exuberance at its core.”
