THE KLEZMER VILLAGE
With master clarinet player Christian Dawid
Special guest: Christian Dawid
He is considerd one of today's leading klezmer clarinetists in the current lively klezmer scene. He is one of the few clarinet players to completely master the art of the C-clarinet, an instrument that voices strong emotions using its intense and compelling sound. From his home base Berlin, Dawid travels around the world to perform with other klezmer heroes. Besides his concerts with Shtetl Band Amsterdam he plays with Urszula Makosz, Paul Brody, The Other Europeans, Brave Old World, Budowitz, Frank London and the group that he leads, Konsonans Retro.
