The Augusta Jewish Federation Presents Oy Klezmer!
AJCC, 898 Weinberger Way, Evans, GA 30809
The Augusta Jewish Federation 2016 Annual Campaign Kickoff features Oy Klezmer! One of the hottest trends in international music today is the resurgence of Klezmer, which features the soulful and exhilarating melodies of Eastern Europe. Atlanta-based Oy Klezmer! is acclaimed throughout the Southeast for its authentic presentation of this distinctive folk genre which is spiced with Gypsy influences. Oy Klezmer! performances hearken back to the days of the orignal Klezmorim, professional itinerant Jewish musicians who played at festive occasions of Jewish and Christian communities across Europe.
Klezmer music is closely related to Jazz. Like Benny Goodman or Artie Shaw? Both were influenced by Klezmer music as was George Gerswhin. Klezmer music infectious. Listening to Klezmer can caust you to dance in the aisles!
