The Klezmatics became world-renowned superstars when they erupted out of New York City’s East Village in 1986 to revitalize klezmer for new generations. Their music is steeped in Eastern European Jewish tradition and spirituality, while also incorporating contemporary themes such as human rights, antifundamentalism, and eclectic musical influences—from jazz and punk to Arab, African, Latin, and Balkan rhythms. Over the course of thirty years, they have released nine albums of wild, spiritual, and ecstatically danceable music, forever redefining and transcending traditional labels. In the process, they have garnered numerous accolades, including a GRAMMY Award, a New York Jewish Music Award, a Gay and Lesbian American Music Award, and the German Critics Award (twice), in addition to being featured in theater, film, and television projects.
