New Yiddish World Music and a flair of South America

Here come the kings of Latino Klezmer! Bass player and frontman Markus Milian Müller is an expert on the music of Southern American expatriate Jews. Together with accordionist Bartek Stanczyk and percussionist Daniel Piccon, he combines a variety of musical traditions from Bobov to Bogota, with a little detour through Poland, New York, and Cuba. Flutist Gustavo Mendoza is their special guest from Columbia, who will add to the South American flair of the night. They will be presenting their new programme „mentsh“.
