Traditional Roots and Gypsy Beats to Move your Heart and Feet (JCC Chicago and CJE)
With uplifting energy that puts your soul in touch with your soles, the Ensemble M’chaiya ™ – Chicagoland’s first revival Klezmer band – gets everyone’s heart and feet dancing to Klezmer tunes set to Gypsy grooves, boogie-ing to rhythmic Sephardic songs, swinging to Yiddish Big-Band songs, and flying along to upbeat Israeli dance tunes. (Whenever appropriate and feasible, the band members lead fun yet simple traditional line and circle dances while playing!!) This performance is by a duo, with a female artist who plays an instrument, but will not sing. Kosher lunch from Sandwich Club.
