Notes and Editorial Reviews

This CD is a double celebration! First, the Jowel Klezmorim celebrated ten years of existence in March 2003 - and second, Klezmer is the music of celebration! With it's roots in the wedding music of Eastern European Jews, the "Klezmorim" or "Kappelye" have been the musical voice of a people and captures the bittersweet, happy-yet-sad flavor of life as no other music can. The present CD compilation is made up of pieces which were performed and developed during ten years of touring and travel - hence the album's name, "Unterwejgen" - the Yiddish expression for "on the road". The "Joyful Klezmers" wish you much listening pleasure on your musical journey! This CD is a double celebration!
