A Tale of Two Bands

American Klezmer

Mark Solbin

University of California Press

This chapter focuses on the careers of two major bands—The Klezmorim and Brave Old World—which emerged partly or wholly from the little-known California context of the 1970s. Drawing on interviews and song texts, it imagines how klezmer music evokes emotion and makes experiences of “Jewishness” reverberate with both fondness and a sense of loss.

Keywords:   klezmer music, The Klezmorim, Brave Old World, Jewish musicians
