Four weddings & no funeral with the SOAS Klezmer Band on this A World in London!
We had a fabulous dance - tanz fest on this AWIL as the SOAS Klezmer Band whirled us around the studio with their mix of traditional Eastern European sounds & Yiddish songs! SKB is the only university group in our capital dedicated to preserving this Jewish music tradition and its current members include brilliant musicians like Clayton Dahm, Rachel Sears, John MacNaughton, Laura Thomlinson, Kieran Hagan, and the ubiquitous dance caller & ‘Whitechapel Noise’ author Vivi Lachs. SKB was created just at the turn of this century by founding members like Merlin Shepherd and its offshoots include groups like She’koyokh, Don Kipper, and Oysland. Anyone can join the SOAS Klezmer Band so what are you waiting for? The party is ON! Find out more via their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/SOASKlezmer/
