KLEZMER! with Ismena at The Jazz Room

After a sell-out concert at the iconic Jazz Room at The Bull’s Head in Barnes, Ismena will be returning on Monday the 23rd of December with the sometimes uplifting and sometimes haunting music of the Eastern European shtetl and the medieval Spain.

Vocalist Maya Levy weaves a fascinating tale of these long-ago worlds while clarinettist Livia Frankish wails, guitarist Eyal Pik serenades and cellist Mayda Narvey straddles the support of stand up bass and the interweaving melodies of the violin.
Come prepared to laugh, cry and stamp your feet.
Tickets £12 in advance / £15 on the door



Klezmer is a musical tradition of the Ashkenazi Jews of Eastern Europe. Working under various restrictions in different centuries and cultures, Jewish musicians (klezmorim) developed their own unique voice inspired by the local musical styles.
