The Klezmatics are world-renowned and Grammy-winning superstars of the klezmer world. They erupted out of New York City East Village in 1986 and revitalized klezmer for the new century with music that is steeped in Eastern European Jewish tradition and spirituality, while incorporating contemporary themes such as human rights and anti-fundamentalism with eclectic musical influences including Arab, African, Latin and Balkan rhythms, jazz and punk. In the course of over twenty years they have released nine albums of wild, spiritual, provocative, reflective, and ecstatically danceable music, forever redefining and transcending traditional labels. The Embassy will feature a selection of the Violins of Hope instruments on display during this Klezmer event. We thank the Journal Gazette Foundation for their support of this unique musical experience.
