Di Shikere Kapelye

Release Date:

World / Klezmer / Brass / USA


Press Release / Description:
On this dynamic debut album the Allstars soubriquet is no misnomer. Gathered together are members of the world's leading Klezmer bands - the Klezmatics, Brave Old World, the Klezmer Conservatory Band, Hasidic New Wave, Naftule's Dream, Paradox Trio, KlezMs., Shirim, S. F. Klezmer Experience, Les Miserables Brass Band, and the groups of Andy Statman and David Krakauer - to pay tribute to the legendary Shikere Kapelye (Inebriated Orchestra), a 19th-century traditional Jewish Oriental village brass band that inexorably influenced the course of Klezmer music. A blast of brass to blow the cobwebs off the past!
