“Klezmer en Buenos Aires”

I first heard the duo "Klezmer en Buenos Aires" in a Buenos Aires 1940s-vintage corner bar called the Cafe Mar Azul. This tiny space, seating a few dozen people, was so packed with standees that night that they opened the big windows so that there were more people were listening from out on the street than there were inside the jammed bar. The duo's clarinet and accordion sang out onto the sidewalks until people were dancing on the pavement to the sobbing krekhts and trilling dreylekhs.
