KLEZMANIA! is a contemporary representation of klezmer music. Founded in May 1989 in San Francisco by Ben Brussell, KLEZMANIA! began to professionally perform klezmer music throughout the Bay Area and Los Angeles. As the group evolved, Brussell brought in players from a variety of backgrounds and expanded the repertoire to encompass the klezmer musical experience -- and beyond.

Brussell’s exploration into klezmer revealed to him a dense network of musical and historical roots that spans over 4,000 years. This intense multicultural mosaic is the music of centuries of tribal wandering throughout the Middle East, Eastern Europe, Africa and the Mediterranean. His fascination and pursuit of these myriad world music sensibilities has become the trademark sound of the group.

Much of KLEZMANIA''S! improvisation is based from Eastern European folk music idioms and is considered a continual work in progress. The influence of classical and American jazz music reflects the fusion process that continues with modern klezmer musicians. Brussell refers to the format as definitive world music. A music that inherently lends itself to the creativity of what has been and what can be, while possessing the soul of the past -- and passion of human artistic expression. KLEZMANIA! is one of California’s premier modern klezmer ensembles.
