Shirim - Klezmer Nutcracker
A little bit Polish, a little Russian and a little Near Eastern, Klezmer is the music of the Eastern European Jews. It shimmers with all of the chutzpah, glorious joy and soulful crying of the itinerant Yiddish troubadours who performed throughout Europe for 400 years.
The members of Shirim all also perform in Naftule's Dream , an avant jazz/klezmer band. As Naftule’s Dream they have performed all over Europe including the Berlin, Germany Jazzfest, as well as the New York City Jazz Festival, the Bell Atlantic Jazz Festival in Washington, DC and the Ashkenaz Festival of New Yiddish Culture in Toronto among others. shirim.com
