Album Remarks & Appraisals:

There is a very particular charm about klezmer music that cannot be found in other musical style. It's a kind of melancholic exuberance; at once happy and sad; klezmer sounds simultaneously like laughing and weeping. A musical genre in a constant state of evolution, klezmer escapes easy definition. This eclectic collection highlights the many forms of klezmer, from the more 'traditional' to those with a more modern touch, played by bands hailing from Poland, the UK, Germany, the Americas, Sweden and Denmark. Brief details of the collection's contents can be found in the accompanying booklet.
