- About Metropolitan Klezmer Ensemble
Established in 1994, Metropolitan Klezmer brings eclectic exuberance to Yiddish musical genres from all over the map. Performing vibrant versions of lesser-known gems from wedding dance, trance, folk, swing and tango styles, as well as soundtrack material from vintage Yiddish films, they re-invent tradition with both irreverence and respect… an exhilarating journey!

- About Isle of Klezbos Ensemble
Isle of Klezbos approaches tradition with irreverence and respect. Based in NYC, this soulful, fun-loving powerhouse all-women’s klezmer sextet has toured from Vienna to Vancouver since 1998. Band repertoire ranges from rambunctious to entrancing: neo-traditional folk dance, mystical melodies, Yiddish swing and retro tango, and genre-defying originals.
