KEYNA HORA KLEZMER BAND
The Keyna Hora Klezmer Band plays in Central New York, USA, and
is well-known for lively, ethnic Klezmer dances and Yiddish folk songs.
1:30 pm-2:15 pm
Nefesh Mountain is the place where American Bluegrass and Old-time music meet with Jewish Heritage and tradition. Band leaders, genre-pioneers, and husband and wife Doni Zasloff and Eric Lindberg are the heart of this eclectic offering, and share their love for American music, their own cultural heritage, and each other with audiences throughout the world.
The result of this unexpected and beautiful mix is staggering; and while complete with the kind of adept string virtuosity and through composed arrangements one would hope for from a newgrass band with influences from Bluegrass, Old-Time, Celtic, and Jazz, they also play and sing songs of the heart creating music with a sense of diversity, oneness, and purpose for our world today.
2:45 pm-3:45 pm
YALE STROM AND HOT PSTROMI
Hot Pstromi bandleader and founder Yale Strom was a pioneer among revivalists
in conducting extensive field research in Central and Eastern Europe and the Balkans among the Jewish and Rom communities. This unique research formed the foundation for Yale Strom & Hot Pstromi. Hot Pstromi’s sound – a fusion of traditional klezmer, new Jewish music, Gypsy, khasidic, world beat and Balkan music noted for long improvisational breaks – is unique and celebrated.
4:00 pm-4:45 pm
