Klezmer music originated in the shtetl and ghettos of Eastern Europe, where itinerant Jewish troubadours, known as 'klezmorim', performed at joyful events since the early middle ages. David Krakauer's music is truly a joyful event. Krakauer combines klezmer music with the avant-garde, funk and jazz. He is not your "grandmother's klemzmer' and UMS is bringing his Klezmer Madness to Hill Auditorium on Saturday, March 31 at 8pm.
