U.S. debut! Don’t miss this Mexico City–based septet, who have taken the international music scene by storm with their unique fusion of klezmer music with Middle Eastern influences, rock, electronica, jazz, and Latin American styles such as charanga, son jarocho, and cha-cha. Avant-garde klezmer musician John Zorn calls Klezmerson “one of the most creative and unique bands in Jewish music today.”
