Babele Beat Band Short Info

BABELE BEAT BAND is a world music kapelje from middle Europe. The band is influenced by klezmer and domestic folklore music in combination with new grooves and sounds.
The core of the repertoire contains music inspired by the novel of I.B. Singer´s novel THE FOOLS OF CHELM - an interesting fussion of new approach to klezmer and modern jazz improvisation. The album also contains original lyrics, which help better descripe its atmosphere. Singer is a master in story-telling (presenting). Using plays on words and inteligent humour, he left behind the message that we should learn to distinguish human stupidity and narrowmindedness, even if born in the heads of our leaders. He amuses the reader with absurd and funny stories, but in the background he raises a warning finger, pointing out the danger that threatens from our leaders, who often act the same as the Fools of Chelm. The purpose of this project is to pass on such message using a musical adaptation.
The band beside own author´s compositions also plays some transcriptions from old klezmer mastres like Dave Tarras and original folklore tunes.
