About the group:
Based out of Mexico City, Klezermson fuses Klezmer melodies and rhythms with Gypsy, Middle Eastern, and Latin American influences. This mixture results in an explosion reminiscent of rock, funk, and jazz improvisation over the Klezmer musical fabric.
In 2003, Benjamin Shwartz (composer, violist and pianist) founded KLEZMERSON in order to explore and create a new type of Klezmer music from a Jewish-Mexican standpoint. The band does so by gracefully combining melodies and rhythms from Eastern Europe's Jewish musical tradition (called Klezmer) and playfully infusing it with Gypsy, Middle Eastern and Latin American influences. The resulting sound is a fusion of Rock, Funk and Jazz improvisations over a Klezmer theme.
