This genre bending concert fuses Klezmer Jewish/Yiddish Folk melodies mixed in with Latin Jazz and Swing, all orchestrated and arranged for a 9-member band. A 90-minute concert experience of cross-cultural music that combines rhythms and styles from a range of world cultures while creating a mix of ethnic jazz. Klezmer Company Jazz Orchestra (KCJO) is a cross genre ensemble that defies classification. KCJO continues to evolve by embracing tradition and imagination with a roster of accomplished jazz and classical musicians. Founded by Aaron Kula, KCJO debuted in 1997 with a mission to re-imagine vintage music from various genres through stylized arrangements and improvisation. Over time, the ensemble expanded its repertoire with over 300 transformed works from Jazz, Broadway, American folk songs, Klezmer, Yiddish theater, Latin Jazz, Mideastern, Mediterranean, and Classical music. Kula often uses archival music from collections across the globe as source material for creating new compositions.
