Amsterdam Klezmer Band
Zevenkoppige dansbare Balkan & klezmer band
Starting twenty years ago as a group of buskers playing traditional Yiddish party music on the streets, the Amsterdam Klezmer Band has evolved into an internationally celebrated band with a rock solid live reputation. The AKB reenergizes the sound of Klezmer by casually throwing contemporary styles and techniques into the mix. The band keeps traditional music fresh, urgent and very danceable. Audiences all over the world love it, and The Magnificent Seven of Klezmer unleash a dance party wherever they take the stage.
Mix a dose of klezmer with a pinch of ska, add a shot of Balkan and a smidchen of Gypsy, top it all off with a tablespoon of jazz, some dollops of punk, then put everything through the blender et voilà, you’ve got the recipe for Amsterdam Klezmer Band.
Brass, double bass, accordion and percussion all take each other on with pulsing grooves full of subtle yet raw energy – resulting in a jumping mix of frenzied Dance Music with 21st century Odessian-Amsterdam-Yiddish songs. They really like to make an audience sweat!
