Preßburger Klezmer Band Short Info

The Preßburger Klezmer Band is a unique musical body which has attracted quite a number of fans since it was established in 1995. It is the first Slovak band to take its inspiration from the emotive dance music of Central and Eastern Europe known as klezmer. At the same time, it is also the highest rated among similar bands within the region of the former Czechoslovakia. The band serves up an energetic musical cocktail: a charming mix of Jewish, Slovak, Balkan and Oriental music.

Since its inception, the Preßburger Klezmer Band has performed on a variety of occasions both in Slovakia and abroad, ranging from multi-genre music festivals, and concerts in clubs and classical music halls to entertainment at balls, celebrations and company events. In the last years the band co-operated with such klezmer stars as Frank London, Merlin Shepherd, Steve Weintraub, Lorin Sklamberg etc. The band’s repertoire offers a captivating interpretation of unique and well-known songs — usually sung in Yiddish, but also in Slovak, English and Balkan languages — expressing enthralling emotion and a “music-to-dance to” quality. To date, the Preßburger Klezmer Band has released six albums and participated in several film, theatre and other projects.
