Exciting and innovative, The Alexandria Kleztet has been combining traditional Eastern European/Jewish music with diverse influences for more than a decade.

They began touring internationally in 2007 with an appearance at the Semanas Musicales festival in Chile.

Led by woodwind player Seth Kibel, the band includes violinist Helen Hausmann, bassist Scott Harlan and percussionist Tim Jarvis.

The Alexandria Kleztet recently released it fourth album, "Peace, Love and Coffee." In addition to six original compositions, the recording features fresh arrangements of traditional melodies and creative re-workings of songs by Kurt Weill and John Williams.

The Kleztet has won THIRTEEN Washington Area Music Awards (Wammies) including: World Music Duo or Group, World Music Instrumentalist, Jazz Instrumentalist, World Music Recording.

"The Alexandria Kleztet may not be international stars yet, but under the dynamic leadership of Mr. Kibel they will definitely get there." -- Sing Out (Summer 2006)

Spectacular!
This is a sensational recording. Between the range of material, the creative arrangements, and the spectacular musicianship, the ALEXANDRIA KLEZTET has scored with this CD. You should, too. Buy it. DL it. Spread it around. Great stuff!
