“Isle of Klezbos is no novelty-concept act. The group, whose rambunctious sound mines classic swing and tango as well as traditional East...ern European Jewish klezmer, should win a prize for having one of the cheekiest band names of all time. But despite the cute moniker, the outfit is no joke… The veteran New York musicians [give] an assuredly jubilant performance… One of the most acclaimed and esteemed klezmer units around today.” — Peter Aaron, Chronogram
NYC-based ISLE of KLEZBOS approaches tradition with playful irreverence and deepest respect. Now celebrating two decades together, the soulful, fun-loving powerhouse all-gal klezmer sextet has toured from Vienna to Vancouver since 1998. Band repertoire ranges from rambunctious to entrancing: Neo-traditional folk dance, mystical melodies, Yiddish swing & retro tango, late Soviet-era Jewish drinking song, re-grooved standards, and genre-defying originals. Broadcast credits include CBS Sunday Morning, The L Word, PBS, as well as over a dozen film soundtracks such as Grace Paley: Collected Shorts and Esther Broner: A Weave of Women. The band's acclaimed debut album GREETINGS FROM THE ISLE OF KLEZBOS was followed by latest CD, LIVE FROM BROOKLYN (named among New York Music Daily's «Top 50 Albums of the Year» in any genre). The group is noted for their tight yet adventurous sound, lush arrangements, luscious compositions, and solos that swing the Yiddish stratosphere.
