A unique and utterly infectiously joyous reinterpretation of traditional klezmer music, in the hands of some of the best instrumentalists and singers in the New England area. Described as “the gateway drug to Eastern European music”, the Klezwoods play a blend of klezmer, arabic and balkan music with modern grooves and improvisation.

Rob Rudin's Half-Jewish

It's been two years since drummer Rob Rudin left for the Cape. Now he’s back living in Somerville re-establishing his band that he half-joking calls Rob Rudin's Half-Jewish. “It’s a pun,” explains Rudin, “on the fact that some of the musicians happen to be Jews, some don’t. But it’s serious, too — while all of the music is part of my Jewish experience, the musical influences can come from anywhere.” These influences include music from India and Turkey, Reggae, songs of revolution, salsa, jazz of all eras and, of course, Klezmer.
