Alpen klezmer

Bavarian Klezmer !!

Galileo Music Communication, 2013

The singer Andrea Pancur, crowned by the newspaper Der neue Tag as “the most important representative of Yiddish culture in Germany”, started a surprising adventure in 2012.Born in Bavaria, she plunged into the traditional music of this Landler. And, without surprises, she recognized several tunes of Yiddish songs in this Bavarian repertoire.

The CD Alpen Klezmer  was born with the observation that the Yiddish and Bavarian traditions have certain songs in common.. For Andrea Pancur, this interpenetration of repertoires always was a common phenomenon, particularly for Jewish music. From that thought, the singer gathered many musicians around her (Ilya Shneyveys : accordion and percussion, Lorin Sklamberg : vocals, Deborah Strauss, violin, Joel Rubin : clarinet, Stofferl Well : trumpet, Andreas Schmitges : mandolin, Alan Bern : piano, Markus Milian Müller : bass guitar) who got invested in this original project to restore klezmer music from the mountain pastures.

An astonishing CD !
