Extreme Klezmer Makeover borrows its exuberant, rapturous, whining, laughing, moaning, driving rhythms and melodies from the klezmer musical tradition melded from19th Century Eastern Europe Jewish wedding dance music, 20th Century American big band jazz and Yiddish Theater. Adding its own unique stamp to klezmer’s rich tradition, Extreme Klezmer Makeover cooks up its own brew of contemporary klezmer mixing in Cajun, Reggae, Middle Eastern and American Folk flavors.
