12th Night Klezmer seeks to reclaim the authentic Klezmer rhythm and colors from its original Eastern European sources and to bring back the unique expression of joy and sorrow that made Klezmer music so approachable and popular. This view to the past has given the 12th night Klezmer ensemble a window to the future that brings a familiar sound and spirit with their own original twist.
12th Night Klezmer was born back in 2009 as collaboration among creative musicians trained at the world’s leading music conservatories. The all-Israeli ensemble established its own unique language, style and sounds, influenced by Klezmer masters of our time. After years of individual performances being featured in festivals and media worldwide, the ensemble members have joined forces to bring traditional Jewish music to the forefront of performance.
12th Night Klezmer ensemble members:
Avigail Malachi-Baev, Clarinet; Kobi Malin, Violin; Elad Kabilio, Cello; David Segal, Double-bass; Daniel Dor, Percussion
What is “klezmer”?
Originally, the word “klezmer”, from the yiddish language, meant simply “musicial instrument” and then later referred to “musicians”. However, it has come to characterize the style of secular music played by Ashkenazi Jews for joyful celebrations such as weddings.
