Vibrant Yiddish Soul mixed with Latin American influences!
¡Vibrante mezcla de música Soul Yiddish (Judía) con influencias latinoamericanas!
Klezmer Juice is the musical vision of Gustavo Bulgach. Although Klezmer is commonly associated with our European immigrants, Jews at the turn of the century were settling all parts of the Americas—nowhere more so than Buenos Aries, Argentina. Bulgach was born and raised there—a community that includes 200,000 Jews, the most in any Latin American city. He learned Klezmer music from his family at a young age. But he was equally inspired by secular music of Argentina. And as he traveled around the globe, he found that Klezmer music is the “soundtrack of the Diaspora.” He also realized, quite early on, that if he created music that honored his two backgrounds, people would like the result.Klezmer Juice represents the new generation of Jewish Soul musicians. With wide-ranging international backgrounds, a youthful vibe, and adding an exciting Latin undertone to their music, they see themselves as torchbearers of an ancient traditional craft that unites generations in spirit. They create fresh interpretations of traditional tunes including “Cigarettes”, “Ot Azoi”, “Zemer Atik”, “Eli Eli” and “Donna Donna” to capture the hearts of a new generation of fans with the traditional Klezmer Clarinet—that “laughing-crying Yiddish soul.”
