In cooperation with Egon Schiele Art Centrum in Český Krumlov

22.00 Preßburger Klezmer Band
Primary representative of the genre called ethno/world music and at the same time first klezmer music group in Slovakia. As the title of the group suggests the basis of this music is klezmer (this means Jewish folk music in eastern Europe), which is modified by their own interpretation style, original adaptations and combinations with other styles. Therefore their music feels like pure klezmer, but also jazz, raggae, Latino, Gypsy and Balkan or touch of orient. Simply – emotive and dance music.
