Budowitz documentary

Here is a short documentary about Budowitz, one of my favorite klezmer ensembles.

From Mojo.Com

"In this video discover Budowitz, the groundbreaking traditional ensemble of klezmer music. Since its founding in 1995, Budowitz has featured over 20 musicians in its performances and recordings, including the late Jewish cultural icons, Cili Schwartz and Majer Bogdanski. They have won a number of awards including BBC's Critics Circle award for best CD and the British Songlines Magazine's "Top of the World" award. For more information click Here"

"In this video we learn about the music of Budowitz, which features kaleidoscopic renditions of folk music molded into the unique personal group style from the regions of Bessarabia, Galitsia and Bukovina."
