Klezmer Juice

Klezmer Juice

Klezmer Juice is the real thing - vibrant Yiddish soul combined with youth and musical style. The band brings together some of L.A.'s finest musicians from all walks of life. While many of us associate this music with European immigration to the United States, Jews at the turn of the century were settling all parts of the Americas, and they and their descendents have a rich history in Mexico, Argentina, Brazil and many other Latin American countries. Klezmer Juice bandleader and clarinet player Gustavo Bulgach was born and raised in one such community in Buenos Aires, Argentina. A part of the large and active Jewish community there, he learned Klezmer music from his family at a young age. Inspired by the religious and secular life of the Argentine community, Bulgach, who now lives in Los Angeles, has traveled around the globe, finding that Klezmer music is the “soundtrack of the Diaspora.” Bulgach has managed to forge a new klezmer sound with one ear to tradition and the other locked on the now.
