Concert: Machaya Klezmer Band

The Machaya Klezmer Band has been a fixture of the Washington Klezmer music scene for more than 25 years. Klezmer music was a product of Eastern European Yiddish culture which Jewish immigrants brought with them to the United States in the 1880s. Klezmer music is a style of music that is inherently Jewish in nature. The word Klezmer comes from two Hebrew words, clay and zimmer, meaning vessel of music or song.
