High energy klezmer dance music! Bios below:

Alicia Svigals, a founder of the Grammy-winning Klezmatics, is a composer, vocalist and the world's foremost klezmer violinist, who almost singlehandedly rescued that fiddle tradition from the brink of extinction with her recording Fidl. Svigals also writes and lectures on Jewish music and culture.

Lauren Brody was born in New York City, and has been involved with music since early childhood. A classically trained pianist, she received a B.A. in music from the City University of New York, and pursued a Master's Degree in Music before changing course to devote herself to the restoration and tuning of pianos.

Lauren has been an active performer and teacher of Bulgarian folk music and singing. She appears on two CDs as vocalist and keyboard player with the Yuri Yunakov Ensemble, and has been teaching at seminars since the early 1970s. She leads a dual life as a klezmer musician, and has been a member of Kapelye and Mikveh, with whom she has appeared in films, recorded and toured extensively through the U.S., Canada and Europe.
