The Klezmaholics : real Klezmer from Poland

Posted by easternxpress on May 19, 2009

KlezmaholicsThe band was founded in autumn 2006, by Piotr and Mikołaj, originally as a duet performing yiddish songs, a year after the band became a quintet. The group was awarded during the International Festival of Folk Music Mikołajki Folkowe, in December 2007, in Lublin. In the framework of project Jewish Songbook financed by Polish Ministry of Culture and National Heritage, the group recorded CD called “Greatest Hits”, containing songs presented on this website. Recording session took place in the last analog studio in Poland Rogalów Analogowy. Currently Klezmaholics is working on the project Jazz Midrash which contains traditional Hebrew songs, Psalms, and a number of newly written songs, based on Jewish texts, in the form of a “midrashic dialogue” touching upon contemporary themes.
