Amsterdam Klezmer Band
Irresistible mix of Klezmer, Balkan and jazz
The Amsterdam Klezmer Band has been building an international reputation for years with their distinctive sound, virtuoso musicality and danceable grooves. They recently celebrated their 25th anniversary in a sold-out Carré, Amsterdam.
Mix a dose of klezmer with a pinch of jazz, add a shot of Balkan and a smidgen of Gypsy, et voilà, you’ve got the recipe for Amsterdam Klezmer Band. Brass, double bass, accordion and percussion all bolster each other with pulsing grooves full of subtle yet raw energy. They really like to make an audience sweat, but they can make you dream away on a soulful lament as well.
