Join the world-renowned Klezmatics for a concert of exciting klezmer music. The Klezmatics will perform on Sunday, April 8, at 3 p.m. on the Westermann Stage, Concert Hall in the Adelphi University Performing Arts Center, located at 1 South Ave. in Garden City.
The Klezmatics are currently celebrating their 30th anniversary — 30 years of transforming the Yiddish and klezmer world; 30 years of Yiddish music as a voice for social justice, change, the underdogs and oppressed; and 30 years of “heretical” behavior, of questioning, of going against accepted beliefs and dissenting from established dogma.
The Klezmatics are world-renowned and Grammy-winning superstars of the klezmer world. They erupted out of New York City’s East Village in 1986 and revitalized klezmer for the new century with music that is steeped in Eastern European Jewish tradition and spirituality, while incorporating contemporary themes such as human rights and anti-fundamentalism with eclectic musical influences including Arab, African, Latin and Balkan rhythms, jazz and punk. They have released nine albums of provocative, reflective, and ecstatically danceable music, forever redefining and transcending traditional labels.
