Zetz Klezmer Ensemble's music is firmly based in the classic klezmer traditions of Eastern European Jews, but they also take colors from across the musical spectrum. These creative musicians weave the intimacy of European chamber music together with the infectious fun and entertainment of a dance band. They perform music ranging from originals composed by their own band members to Arabic and Turkish folk songs from the 15th century, to Jewish wedding standards, to popular Yiddish vaudeville music of the 1920s and ‘30s.

Whether or not one is intimate with Jewish culture and music, klezmer music opens the door to a world rich with energy and emotion that is truly universal. It captures the poignancy and fragility of life while, at the same time, emphasizes its joys and triumphs as well.
