Klezmer in The Israel Museum
After a "long year" of shnat evel, mourning, I'm really enjoying musical performances, which had been forbidden. Again I found myself in the Israel Museum. This time there were free klezmer performances in various exhibition areas yesterday afternoon.
They were a "warmup" of sorts for a couple of more serious performances later in the day, for which you had to buy tickets. But my friend and I really had a nice time following this excellent trio around the museum.
We listened to the music and entertaining talk. There was participation, which was clearly enjoyed by adults as well as children.
I put some of the klezmer we heard on youtube for you to enjoy. What do you think?
