Isle of Klezbos and Metropolitan Klezmer plumb the fascinating range of music found in vintage Yiddish film soundtracks, from tango and tragic lullaby to a tenement wedding dance and much more. This multi-media concert -- set against archival film clips -- has been a national sensation with packed performances at Lincoln Center and the Museum at Eldridge Street. The band plays original arrangements inspired by scenes in celebrated movies and lesser-known cinematic gems ranging from The Dybbuk and Uncle Moses to newsreels from Moscow’s State Yiddish Theater and a host of Molly Picon favorites.
