Kapelye

Kapelye

The first ambassadors of klezmer

In concert, Kapelye (Yiddish for band) presents klezmer music, the traditional music of the Jewish communities of Eastern Europe, a music rich in folk tradition as well as the early twentieth century influences of Dixieland, swing, and jazz. Numerous appearances on radio and film, including The Chosen, with Rod Steiger, and Over The Brooklyn Bridge, starring Elliot Gould, and extensive tours of America and Europe have earned Kapelye the title “the First Ambassadors of Klezmer,” popularizing the music among Jews and non-Jews alike. Kapelye's authentic sound, energy, and humor make their performances enjoyable for all.
