JSDD’s Wellness, Arts, Enrichment (Wae) Center winds up the 9th season of its Global Beat Series with a performance by Metropolitan Klezmer. This irresistible group’s eclectic approach to Yiddish musical genres from around the globe includes wedding dances, folk tunes, and more. They mix modern and traditional instruments and arrangements.

METROPOLITAN KLEZMER, established in 1994, brings eclectic exuberance to Yiddish musical genres from all over the map. Performing vibrant versions of lesser-known gems from wedding dance, trance, folk, swing and tango styles, as well as soundtrack material from vintage Yiddish films, they re-invent tradition with both irreverence and respect… an exhilarating journey!
Come out and join the fun!
