Klezmer Band with Saskia Tomkins


Balfolk 2016 P1630506.jpg

 

Klezmer draws on centuries-old Jewish traditions and also incorporates the sounds of music from European and international traditions, including Roma (gypsy) music, Eastern European folk music, French Café music and early jazz. In this ensemble, simple melodies are played and complimented with improvised harmonies offering the opportunity to learn about this style and its traditional scales.
