about

It's wild hick ethnic roots music, it's a hand-clapping foot-stomping, frenzied Yiddish groove session..
It's a hoe-down in a Roumanian village square.
Klezmer as it might have sounded 500 years ago.
The Jews Brothers Band breaks the rules of klezmer, unashamedly and with chutzpah: no clarinets, violins or drums, these brothers (plus one sister) just get down to it with chonking gypsy style mandolin, pumping tea-chest bass, blasting brass horn, shakers and finger cymbals, and vibrant melodica and accordion, all aided and abetted by soulful 5-part vocals that sound as if they come straight out of a mediaeval ghetto.
If you can't dance to this album, you gotta problem!
