Klezmer quartet Don Kipper presents a special Holocaust Memorial Week performance. Don Kipper are a multi award-winning ensemble playing and transforming a wide range of traditional musical forms reflecting the cultural diversity of North East London. While they root themselves deeply in the traditions that surround them, they seek to explore radical interpretations and taut arrangements full of complex harmonies, rhythms and imaginative improvisation.
Join them on journey into the world of Eastern European Jewish and Roma music making, from hectic hongas and franticfreylekhs, to tranquil Dobridens and soulful Doinas. Over the course of the evening Don Kipper will tell you of the stories and the lives of great Klezmer musicians (the Klezmorim) of the past and help bring to life this most durable of traditions.
