Amsterdam Klezmer Band featuring Alec Kopyt

Amsterdam Klezmer Band featuring Alec Kopyt / Nizozemí, Ukrajina

6. 5. - Palác Akropolis, 19:30 / Respect Plus

With their talented musicians, the Amsterdam Klezmer Band (AKB) is an energetic and poetic stage act that charms international audiences. Their refreshing approach to Klezmer and Balkan music transcends the traditional aspects of this music and results in a very lively mix of Eastern-European sound. Since its foundation in 1996 by saxophone player Job Chajes, the band has evolved rapidly. In no time the band became world-famous in Amsterdam for its many vibrant performances on the streets, in the parks and in the pubs.

The EX, Dutch 'experimental trance-dance avant-afro-punk improv' trio with a long history of cross-cultural projects (Konono No 1 from Congo, Getatchew Mekurya from Ethiopia), have chosen this time one of the leading talents from the vibrant club scene of Addis Ababa. Singer and masinqo (one-string fiddle) player Chalachew Ashenafi draws from the deep tradition of the Azmaris, Ethiopian minstrels/poets/improvisers, and is also recognized as the brightest hope of the new generation emerging after the collapse of the Mengistu regime.
