Space Klezmer Goylem (Norway)

Saturday 11th March, 10pm
Kulturforum Große Halle (no seating!)

Hot homemade Klezmer-Brass

Goylem is an unusual musical phenomenon hailing from Oslos underground scene. With one foot rooted in traditional klezmer, the several other feet and limbs of this intergalactic folk ensemble are free to explore Nordic traditions, Balkan beat, Middle Eastern dance rhythms, psychedelic prog and sci-fi electronica.

Space klezmer as a genre can be seen as an extension of the progressive klezmer tradition of the 20th century. With deep love for the traditions they build on, the Goylemites put pride in abolishing borderlines. Between the sacred and the humorous, and the musically correct and incorrect.
