Expect exuberant and accomplished performances from this all-female band of Europe’s top Klezmer players, back in Australia by popular demand.

Fast and furious one moment, soulful and reflective the next, London Klezmer Quartet’s traditional and self- penned melodies will stir your emotions and feed your soul with authentic ‘sounds of the shtetl’ and take you on a musical odyssey from Eastern Europe to Australia via the Balkans, Thailand, Turkey, the US and London.
