Paris Klezmer

Music of the world

These five musicians are like the fingers of a virtuoso’s hand playing music without borders, without limits… Klezmer music, from the shtetels of Eastern Europe. They perpetuate the tradition of the “wandering people”, immersed in all the rhythms, melodies and modes encountered along the way. “Yankele” means “little-John”, yet their art is grand. Coming from very different horizons —classical, jazz, chanson, bossa-nova— the musicians unite their talent, their instruments and even their voices to expand their creativity. They take us on a journey between Paris and the origins of Klezmer music, blending French waltzes, Gypsy songs, Israeli lullabies and many more with tenderness, humour, and generosity.
