International Klezmer Festival Fürth – Germany

Felix BandThe International Klezmer Festival Fürth & Jewish Music Today event will be held at the Kulturforum Fürth, Germany from March 15th to 17th organised by Stadtverwaltung Fürth.

The event will include a variety of workshops and concerts some of which are sold out.

On March 16th, Felix Shinder & Dengi Vpered (picture left), an 8 piece band from Ukraine (which includes accordionist Oleg Vasyanovych), will perform Wild Klezmer mixed with rough Balkan brass and "gangster songs". The band unites Russian and Ukrainian music, especially old folk songs from Odessa, with Yiddish songs and Klezmer melodies from all over Eastern Europe.

This will be followed by Mischpoke (Germany - picture below), a six piece band which includes accordionist Martin Terens. This group show their joy of playing with tempo, wit and charm, as well as melancholy and depth – attributes that characterize their sound.

Mames Babegenush (Denmark) which includes accordionist Nicolai Kornerup will provide further entertainment. This popular band has been bringing traditional Freilachs and Eastern European folk to the international stages for 15 years now and this year they present a project of a very special kind. Joined by a string quartet, the band embarks on a new musical territory. The result is absolutely worth listening to: sometimes klezmer, sometimes classical music, sometimes lively and excited, sometimes calm and melancholic.
