Welcome to Stockholm's Open Air Klezmer Jam #5
Tuesday, August 12th from h. 17:00
Meeting point: Vitabergsparken's amphitheater
The event is open to anyone interested in Klezmer music.
We will respect corona-security distancing measures, and yet we will enjoy to finally play our favourite Klezmer tunes together! Bring your instrument/s and, if you wish to read from scores, do not forget your own music stand and clips/clothespins! (to secure the scores in case of breeze)
We will have a Fika break, so please bring your own snack and beverage.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
The event is organized in collaboration with Svenska Klezmerföreningen.
@ Paideia Folkhögskola - Stockholm
Welcome to a series of meetings dedicated to Klezmer music. We will discover the fantastic and rich repertoire of American and Eastern-European Jewish instrumental folk music: its joyful and melancholic melodies, how to interpret and embellish them with the traditional ornamentations, discovering the structure of the melodies and their modes, as well as how to accompany the various dance genres with their diverse and characteristic rhythmical patterns. The course will also include Hasidic nigunim, an introduction to Klezmer dances and, as tradition wants, will be taught by ear using our voices. Open to instrumentalists with an intermediate level of experience on their instruments.
More information here.
This course is given in collaboration with Svenska klezmerföreningen.

Hevruta BeMusika is an artistic performance which combines hevruta methodology with a musical creative process. The performance is the elaboration in music of a discussion over Jewish texts led by the musicians as part of the rehearsals time. Made up by three female professionals bringing their own expertise in the genres of Klezmer, Arabic-Jazz, and Gypsy-Roma music and bringing them together through improvisation and original compositions inspired by the discussion over the texts. The 3 musicians met in Denmark in 2014 during their GLOMAS Master's studies at the Royal Academy of Music of Århus.
After the concert, the musicians will play for the Klezmer dances led by Heléne Don Lind.
Valeria Conte: clarinet, vocal
Antti Korhola: violin
Juska Ojajärvi: accordion
Philip Holm: double bass
From the rusty sound of wandering Jewish Eastern-European fingers recorded in the late '20s VALLILA KLEZMORIM emerges and proposes almost forgotten Klezmer melodies searching for authenticity within the spirited ornaments and rhythms.
After the concert, the musicians will play for the Klezmer dances led by Mea Nordenfelt.
