This is the second release on Essay Recordings by the AMSTERDAM KLEZMER BAND, an energetic stage act that has charmed international audiences with their original approach to klezmer and Balkan music that transcends the traditional, resulting in a very lively mix of Eastern-European sounds. The album contains 15 brand new tracks -- all original compositions rooted in the klezmer tradition and infused with Romanian, Turkish, Serbian, Russian and Macedonian sounds. These days, only part of the AMSTERDAM KLEZMER BAND repertory consists of traditionals of Balkan or klezmer origin.
