Loshn – Yiddish for language – present an exciting new collaboration between two of the UK’s leading Klezmer musicians and virtuoso cimbalom player Janos Kallai.
Together they play Klezmer music that sings, speaks and dances with the tradition’s distinct Yiddish accent.
With a repertoire that spans more than a century, they present a beautiful and varied programme from the music’s roots in pre-World War One Eastern Europe, to 1950s America and beyond.
The incorporation of cimbalom into the band is not only an exciting new musical venture for Loshn but also for the UK klezmer scene as a whole. Loshn are now uniquely placed as the first and (currently) only Klezmer ensemble in the UK to incorporate this beautiful instrument into a lineup.
