The San Fernando Cathedral will be filled with music on Sunday evening, but a kind of music that’s likely never been played there before. You can tell by the sound of it that this music comes from somewhere else. It’s Klezmer music. [editor's note: hit "Listen" above to hear Metropolitan Klezmer]
“Klezmer music is rooted in the Yiddish tradition, which is the tradition of the Yiddish-speaking Jews who came originally from Eastern Europe.”
Eve Sicular founded and plays drums for the group Metropolitan Klezmer.
