“Violin, piano accordion, bass and clarinet meet in a joyous celebration that goes far beyond the traditional klezmer field of weddings to embrace a celebration of life itself” (Sydney Morning Herald).
In “stylish performances from four highly accomplished and in-demand musicians’” (FolkRoots Magazine) this all female band will take you on a Jewish musical Odyssey from Eastern Europe to Australia via the Balkans, Turkey, the US and London. Amy Ray of the Indigo Girls says, “The London Klezmer Quartet brims with musicality and elicits every emotion possible in my soul… I want to laugh, I want to cry, but most importantly I want to dance.” This is the music that kept Yiddish wedding parties on their feet for days, but there are soulful moments too, as any party-goer will know!
LKQ's authentic sound is endorsed by leading exponents of this tradition, including Stuart Brotman of Brave Old World and Frank London of the Klezmatics, as well presenters of world music. Doug Spencer, presenter of ABC radio national’s The Weekend Planet, says of them “the real deal, to these ears”.
