Yours truly is certainly no expert where klezmer is concerned - don't ask me to explain the difference between sirba and oompah for example - but fortunately the language of music is universal enough to make that unnecessary. The Amsterdam Klezmer Band is a seven member ensemble giving this genre of Eastern European origin and often sung in Yiddish its own spin by adding lyrics in Dutch ('Kaas', 'Geen Sores'). Album title 'Katla' refers to Iceland's largest volcano and has nothing to do with the kitten on the album cover. Klezmer continues to attract a somewhat different audience than the numerous Balkan bands (who stem more or less from the same region) out there, a fact that's not really justified. May this musical volcano convince you!
