11th Annual Klezmerquerque

KlezmerQuerque 2013

Klezmer is a musical tradition of the Ashkenazic Jews of Eastern Europe consisting mainly of dance tunes and large instrumental ensembles for weddings and other celebrations. This weekend marks the return of the 11th annual KlezmerQuerque music and dance festival. This anticipated event is produced by Congregation Nahalat Shalom, its 20-piece intergenerational Community Klezmer Band and Rikud Yiddish dance troupe. Beginning Friday at 6:30 p.m., enjoy a weekend of concerts, workshops, dance parties, traditional instruments, services, tasty foods and more. You can even learn the art of Profane Jewish Dance (aka “Yemenite hip-hop”). Visit nahalatshalom.org or facebook.com/KlezmerQuerque for more information. (Emily Aragon)
