Judith, and Eisner's Klezmorim are on Facebook.
Here is a tune from a live recording by
KFAI radio. It's called Solyam Pal.
This is Doyna, musical drama to open the show.
Eisner's Klezmorim plays a fast tune, a freykekhs in C
Judith Eisner plays traditional klezmer music from the old world as a soloist, in duos, trios and with a string band as well as a klezmer dance band.
The dance band has a big Old World sound of accordion, clarinet, and double bass. Added to this mix is the distinctly Eastern European sound of fiddle and the Tsimbl, or Cymbolim, a Hungarian hammered dulcimer. And often a Ukrainian / Greek mandolin joins in. The band creates a wild acoustic experience of an old world wedding and that's where the band usually plays - at Weddings.
The klezmer string band has two and often three violins, a mandolin, tsimbl and double bass.
This is the authentic sound of klezmer music a hundred years ago before clarinets and brass became popular in the new world. (America especially...)
They play some beautiful music and they often play in coffee houses, churches and synagogs.
