Isle of Klezbos: Celebrating Women’s History Month

Celebrate Women's History Month with fun-loving powerhouse all-gal sextet Isle of Klezbos, which approaches Yiddish tradition with both playful irreverence and soulful respect. The group combines stellar talents (alumnae of Juilliard, Eastman, Harvard and more) to form a unique repertoire also noted for exceptional, genre-defying original compositions. As described by The New Yorker, "Isle of Klezbos tests the elasticity of the genre." Beyond boisterous dance rambunction, mystical melodies, haunting retro tango, love-songs, lullabies, Soviet Jewish surprises and Big Band-stylings for long-lost Yiddish pop standards, the ensemble also presents new klezmer reggae, klezmerengue and its very latest: fabulous, Bronx-based klezmer boogaloo. 

Debra Kreisberg: clarinet & alto saxophone
Pam Fleming: trumpet & flugelhorn

Shoko Nagai: accordion & piano 
Saskia Lane: upright bass
