Klezmania are a friendly, approachable klezmer trio based in London , specialising in Jewish wedding and bar mitzvah celebrations. Formed in 1999, Klezmania are Chris Haigh (fiddle), Philip Clouts (piano, accordion) and Alex Keen (double bass). We are all experienced professional musicians with interests ranging from folk and ethnic music to jazz and swing. In Klezmania we try to take a fresh and invigorating approach to Jewish traditional music, borrowing from many styles to make it as interesting, lively and enjoyable as possible.
We do both private functions (weddings, parties, bar and bat mitzvahs) and public performances (theatres, arts centres, festivals and so on).
For weddings we can offer music for the ceremony, reception, dinner and dancing; f required the band can be augmented by other instruments (clarinet, drums, guitar), a singer (Hebrew and Yiddish, jazz and covers) and a caller to lead Jewish dancing.
Klezmania are unique in being able to offer Jewish/Scottish and Jewish/Irish wedding music and dancing. If requested we can combine Jewish dancing and music with Scottish or Irish Ceilidh music, and we have a caller who can lead dances in both styles.
