Sirba Octet

(Klezmer, Gypsy, France) An ensemble of highly trained musicians, mostly from the Orchestre de Paris, the Sirba Octet presents their own original take on traditional klezmer, Yiddish and gipsy music.

When violinist Richard Schmoucler founded the Sirba Octet in 2003, he created an entirely new sound. With arrangers Cyrille Lehn and Yann Ollivo, five fellow musicians from the Orchestre de Paris, a pianist and a cimbalom player, he formed a unique ensemble with a fresh perspective on klezmer, Yiddish and gypsy music.
