Músicas na Rua: Portugese klezmer band Melech Melaya looking cool on street corners

There should be rule that every good klezmer band needs to be able to look and sound cool playing on a street corner. Melech Melaya sure does. I was catching up on recent posts on the Spanish language klezmer blog "Música klezmer" and found Melech Melaya's "Músicas na Rua" video. Which is, more or less, a medley of klezmer tunes, Melaya style, on a street corner. There is something infectious about the bumpadity drum and the swirly carnival style clarinet runs. Great fun.
