THE ODESSA REVIEW NEW ISSUE
Pushkin Klezmer Band is a Jewish orchestra from Kyiv. It consists of musicians with very different backgrounds – from Ukraine, Moldova, and Russia. Their music is an inimitable mixture of Jewish, Moldavian, and Gypsy motifs. A century ago, this kind of music was the musical “lingua franca” for the cultures coexisting in Bessarabia and southern Ukraine. Today it has become a part of the “world music” genre, and Pushkin Klezmer Band have done much to revive its popularity! Although they enjoy great success at weddings, they also perform at clubs, concert halls and festivals – but always with the same infectious danceability!
