World-renowned superstars whose music is "as deeply compassionate as it is invigorating, as accessible as it is virtuosic" (Time Out New York), The Klezmatics erupted out of New York's East Village in 1986 and revitalized klezmer for the new century. The music is steeped in Eastern European/ Jewish tradition and spirituality, while incorporating contemporary themes such as human rights and anti-fundamentalism. The Klezmatics have collaborated with numerous luminaries, including Pulitzer Prize playwright Tony Kushner and folk hero Arlo Guthrie to name a few. They have performed at some of the world's most storied venues and festivals and their accolades include a GRAMMY Award for "Best Contemporary World Music Album" and the New York Jewish Music Award for "Best Klezmer Band".
