Metropolitan Klezmer brings eclectic exuberance to Yiddish musical genres from all over the map.

Formed in 1994 by drummer/leader Eve Sicular, this collaborative adventure of exceptional New York musicians combines the best of downtown, classical and World Music scenes to create inspired neo-traditional interpretations and compositions around a panoply of eclectic Yiddish repertoire: ethereal trance, rollicking dance, imaginatively-arranged Yiddish swing and tango, plus genre-expanding originals such as klezmer cumbia.

Hailed as "one of the finest American klezmer bands" by Songlines Magazine (UK), Metropolitan Klezmer performs an exhilarating range of musical treasure with astonishing agility and refreshing depth. They re-invent tradition with both irreverence and respect.
