Read on for article

Join us for a special night of Klezmer Music at Django Bar, Camelot Lounge as part of Vivid Sydney.

Klezmer is a musical tradition of the Ashkenazi Jews of Eastern Europe. Played by professional musicians called klezmorim, the genre originally consisted largely of dance tunes and instrumental display pieces for weddings and other celebrations. In the UsS however it fused with a bit of Southern jazz to give us the sound we know as Klezmer Today.

Come celebrate life with the sound of ‘Baltic Bar Mitzvah’. Largely improvised fusion of European Folk, Tango, Jazz Standards, Originals & Contemporary Grooves. Great music for people to both sit back and listen, or to get up and Dance.

The Klezmer Valley Girls are a group of skilled musicians who have joined forces on a journey through Jewish celebratory music. Featuring two accordions, flute, double bass and banjo, the Klezmer Valley Girls bring together an eclectic array of musical talents and experience in this recently formed band. The Klezmer Valley Girls explore new ways that their unusual combination of instruments can evoke the spirited sounds of vital and exotic klezmer music..
