Tsibele - a Brooklyn-based klezmer band

Tuesday, November 7th, 2017

Tsibele’s dark, unusual arrangements of Yiddish songs, and atmospheric original compositions draw deeply from the Jewish music of Romania and Moldova, 19th century secular Yiddish folksongs from Eastern Europe, and contemporary folk and improvised music. In Droysn iz Finster/ It’s Dark Outside is an album for dark times. While some songs describe life under capitalism and heteropatriarchy, yearning for freedom and unrequited love, others celebrate the triumph over tyranny. The album’s instrumental pieces -- original compositions and traditional tunes -- emphasize klezmer’s relationship to regional musical genres and dialects.
