Klezmer - Traditional Jewish Celebration Music Multicultural- Other,
Klez Project performs klezmer and other Jewish traditional folk music. Klez Project features Binghamton resident allen lutins on clarinets, together with Rima Grunes (violin), David "Melnick" Zakalik (piano/accordion), Ryan Zawul (trombone/tuba), Dana Mandel (mandolin) and Greg Ezra (percussion). Klezmer music arose in medieval eastern European Jewish communities to perform at simkhas (holidays and celebratory events, especially weddings). Its origins lay in Jewish folk music and cantorial chanting, with elements of other local ethnic folk tunes (especially those of the Roma) and military band music. When brought to the United States by Jewish immigrants in the 20th century, it was further influenced by jazz and theatre music. In addition to eastern European-derived pieces, the modern klezmer repertoire is typically augmented by Yiddish melodies, Israeli folk music, tunes from early 20th-century American Yiddish theatre productions, and modern compositions in the traditional style. Klez Projects performances span this full range of the repertoire.
