Di Naye Kapelye
Unlike most contemporary Klezmer bands, Di Naye Kapelye's style is that of Eastern Europe rather than that of American Klezmer. Their style is influenced by the 'kapelyes' of Romania, Hungary and of the Gypsy musicians who performed along side Jewish musicians of the past. Today, in Hungary and Romania, Gypsies are the main source for living practitioners of Jewish music. This is a brilliant and important recording, keeping the memory alive of a musical style that was once so common in these regions and now so rare.
