What is Klezmer?  It’s gaining a lot of popularity, but what do we really know about klezmer? Alicia Svigals, a renowned klezmer fiddler, sets straight some of the misconceptions of klezmer music and talks about  its growth in popularity – even beyond the Jewish population!

Klezmer Music by Alicia SvigalsAlicia on Misconceptions about klezmer:  “It is not all fast ‘hora’ music; klezmer has the full range of moods, modes and tempos, from solemn ceremonial melodies, to elegant cocktail hour background music, all the way up to the crazy fast stuff.”

“Klezmer is a cousin of “Hebrew” music, aka “simkhe (simcha) dancing music” – the music popular at orthodox and modern orthodox events – but it is not the same.  We do mix that repertoire in whenever we have a crowd that will enjoy it though.  But klezmer is essentially non-religious, instrumental party music and you don’t have to be religious for it to be on your playlist!” READ MORE ......
