Starting twenty years ago as a group of buskers playing traditional Yiddish party music on the streets, the Amsterdam Klezmer Band has evolved into an internationally celebrated band with a rock solid live reputation. The AKB reenergizes the sound of Klezmer and is not limited by traditions or expectations. In 2016, the AKB celebrates its twentieth anniversary with the release of a special album: Oyoyoy - the natural next step in the evolution of progressive Klezmer from Amsterdam.
