Some more about Klezmic:
Klezmic Zirkus was formed in 2006 during the ‘Nuits Nomades’. At the very beginning of this music group from Liege (Belgium): the clarinettist Aurélie Charneux. It was her musical sensitivity for Klezmer music that has brought together the members of the group. The band quickly attracted notice thanks to its re-appropriation of the Klezmer genre. A condensation of virtuosity and madness, a festive energy without any concession…
Ever since, Klezmic Zirkus has performed more than 350 concerts on a row (Esperanzah, Dranouter, La Semo, Un soir autour du Monde, …) and produced two albums (Vitamine K, 2007 and 13 chemin des Mandarines, 2010) at Homerecords.be.
Klezmic Zirkus henceforth evolves in the big family of Klezmer at the international level: the group has toured in Europe and Moscow, and collaborates regularly with the Canadian singer and songwriter Geoff Berner, who appreciates particularly the impetuosity of the group. And for October of 2012, a musical project of large proportions: a series of concerts with the amazing New Yorker clarinettist David Krakauer (The Klezmatics, Klezmer Madness, Abraham inc, …), standard bearer of the Klezmer movement, always at the top of modernity of this music style in which he excels.
A third album has been be released on September 26nd 2012!
Dive and apnoea in the huge depth of Klezmer! Some traditional pieces klezmified without moderation, and a couple of compositions of Aurélie Charneux, which decorticate the rhythm, the modes and atmospheres of Klezmer. An energy henceforth more rock, a sound more electronic but which keeps on being very organic and compact at the same time. And a piece live recorded during the ecstasy of the ‘Fête en Pierreuse’ (Liège - Belgium)!
