Cati dintre voi stiti ce e muzica klezmer? Probabil si mai putini ati avut ocazia de a merge la un concert. Pentru prima data in Romania, propunem un festival de muzica traditionala evreiasca klezmer. In urma initiativei Forumului Cultural Austriac, sprijinite de alte institutii culturale ca Centrul Ceh sau Delegatia Comisiei Europene in Romania, a luat nastere Festivalul de Muzica Klezmer, ce reuneste stiluri diferite si variatiuni experimentale ale muzicii klezmer. Printre formatiile prezente se numara Hakeshet Klezmer Band(RO), Vienna Klezmer Band (A), Klezmer Connection (A), The Klezmaholics (PL), Klec (CZ), Aufwind (DE), Mazzektov (NL) si Di Naye Kapelye (HU).

KLEC www.klec.cz
Rocker-folk, flautist, chitarist si vocal, Martin Smid fusese din totdeauna atras de muzica klezmer, si incercase sa se apropie de acest stil muzical, care insa era foarte diferit de cel al formatiei din care facea parte. In 1997 a decis alaturi de fratele sau sa caute colaboratori pentru un proiect de muzica klezmer. Asa a aparut Klec, care in prezent este compusa din Martin Smíd, Jiri Vana, Jan Svamberg, Jakub Schmid, Stefan Culik si Adam Gebert.
Repertoriul Klec cuprinde doar cateva melodii bine cunoscute klezmer. Majoritatea pieselor sunt mai putin cunoscute, experimentale si combina influente klezmer, tiganesti si compozitii proprii, cu versuri in idis si ceha.

ENGLISH VERSION 

JAZZ meets KLEZMER
The band was founded on a Sunday afternoon in February 1997. A then folk-rocker, flute player, guitarist and singer Martin Smid, charmed by klezmer music, was seeking to find use for his creative urge and his wish to play like the Klezmatics, which he could not find with his former band, Lunovis. He invited his brother, also member of Lunovis and some friends to cooperate. That is how it all started. Now the band members are Martin Smíd, Jiri Vana, Jan Svamberg, Jakub Schmid, Stefan Culik si Adam Gebert.

KLEC
Those who venture to see a Klec gig can expect a few best-known and a majority of less-known melodies from the klezmer, Gypsy and the band’s own repertoires, a few lyrics in Yiddish and many in Czech presented in a non-traditional sound (such as “horns” consisting of flute and trumpet). What the listeners are not in for is die-hard folklore arrangements, seriousness associated with the interpretation of a cultural heritage, or a clear answer to whether the musicians are Jews.
