The Klezmatics Hanukkah Concert

Presented by presented by
Venue: Samueli Theater Tickets start at $59.00


Since their emergence three decades ago, the Klezmatics have raised the bar for Eastern European Jewish music, made aesthetically, politically and musically interesting recordings, inspired future generations, created a large body of work that is enduring and helped to change the face of contemporary Yiddish culture. Often called a “Jewish roots band,” the Klezmatics have led a popular revival of this ages-old, nearly forgotten art form.

On this 30th anniversary tour, the band brings their hip, East Village sensibility to this favorite time of the year with music from their recently launched CD, “Apikorsim/Heretics”.

“The Klezmatics aren’t just the best band in the klezmer vanguard; on a good night, they can rank among the greatest bands on the planet.” – Time Out New York

“With their latest album, “Apikorsim/Heretics”, The Klezmatics continue to redefine Yiddish music. Heretics, rebels and questioners, Apikorsim are people who challenge orthodox opinions. The Klezmatics are decidedly unorthodox.” –

Running time (approximate): 2 Hours
