YID! Space Klezmer Album Launch @ Memo Music Hall | Saint Kilda | Victoria | Australia

The hotly anticipated concert and album launch for YID!’s debut release Space Klezmer will explode on stage very soon! This remarkable 22-piece collective of virtuoso musicians including Simon Starr, Willy Zygier, Adam Starr, Husky Gawenda & Gideon Preiss (Husky, The Bashevis Singers), Tomi Kalinski, Alex Burkoy (Tinpan Orange), Josh Abrahams (Puretone) and the three Zygier sisters willtake you on a joyous, edgy and ferociously danceable trip into their Jewish musical roots. They take centuries-old Yiddish drinking songs and combine them with 1930s big band sound, 1960s free jazz, late 1970s New York avant-garde funk, 21st century electronica and indie-folk pop to create a daring new fusion.
