Abstract:

What is Klezmer music? It is a Central European tradition, a Jew-Yiddish-Gypsy musical amalgamation born in the early years of the twentieth century. Is it a living musical culture? To some extent, yes. But ... it is also being revitalized. BKB (Budapest Klezmer Band) is a unique band. Except for the Jewish leader of the band (Ferenc Javori born as Fegya Jakubovits in Carpatian Ukraine) all the band members are Christians. As Fegya says: "If you want to play Klezmer perfectly, you dont have to be a Jew - you have to be a perfect musician." And they are superb. Yiddish Blues is an emotionally charged story told through images and original music.
