The Klezmatics
Woody Guthrie’s Happy Joyous Hanukkah


“Hanukah Tree”
“Spin Dreydl Spin”


 


“The Klezmatics play soul-stirring Jewish roots music for our time, recreating klezmer in arrangements and compositions that combine Jewish identity and mysticism with a contemporary zeitgeist and a postmodern aesthetic.  Since their founding in New York City’s East Village in 1986, the Klezmatics have celebrated the ecstatic nature of Yiddish music with works which are by turns wild, spiritual, provocative, reflective and danceable.”—Jewish Music Group
