Isle of Klezbos
October 25, 2018 , 7:00 pm
Isle of Klezbos celebrates two decades as an all-gal powerhouse sextet, welcoming back special guest Natalia Zukerman. The band and spell-binding singer-songwriter (whose father Pinchas is in fact the son of a Polish-born klezmer player) first melded musical minds earlier this year, exploring poignant Yiddish roots and hidden gems from vintage soundtrack, personal histories, vivid resistance narratives, and soulful sounds of liberation.
Spreading joy coast to coast this 20th anniversary year, Isle of Klezbos’ latest repertoire also features original klezmer bugalu [boogaloo], lesser-known bawdy traditionals, and luscious retakes on irresistible Eastern European swing and tango. Natalia brings vibrant stories and tunes from her powerful multi-media performance, “The Women Who Rode Away,” including lush arrangements with backing Klezbos bandmates.
