Musique Klezmer par Nomadeus

There is something delightfully stagey and off-kilter about this performance by the French ensemble Nomadeus. Normally when klezmer revs up I hear swirling and dancing (no kidding, right?), but in Bazaar Yiddish I hear ... the pounding of a fist on a door, feet running and then horses? There is a narrative of some kind unfolding here and it's a joy to get lost in.

Nomadeus has an album, Tzigish Land, available through , a website and a bunch more videos.
