Klezmerkaba

Klezmerkaba was formed in the summer of 2008 to bring the Klezmer sound to the Tucson community. Klezmerkaba is a 12-piece band comprised of a dynamic group of musicians with various backgrounds in music ranging from semi-professional musicians and vocalist to professional music educators. The name combines two Jewish concepts – “Klezmer” and “Merkabah.” Klezmer comes from two Hebrew words: klay, which means “vessel of” and zemer, meaning “song.” It’s a Yiddish word for musical instrument or musicians, and is used to describe the dance music of Eastern European Ashkenazi Jews. The Hebrew word Merkabah means chariot or riding.
