Budapest Klezmer

Many would say that klezmer music serves as a bridge between cultures, connecting Jewish and non-Jewish alike.

The Budapest Klezmer Band successfully combines klezmer music with classical music, creating a unique, characteristic crossover between styles.

The Budapest Klezmer Band is going to hold the premiere of Hasene (wedding) at the opening day of this year’s festival and they are going to show the audience the Jewish Odessa of the 1910′s and 1920′s. The songs and jokes present us with the colors and richness of Jewish life, mostly characterizing the beginning of the 20th century in Odessa.  The special guest of the event is Tamás Dunai actor.
