Sibling band Metropolitan Klezmer, founded by drummer / bandleader Eve Sicular in 1994, shares a number of musicians with Isle of Klezbos. Traveling Show, a live concert recording, is augmented with an Isle of Klezbos studio “Klezbonus” track: our Yinglish / boogaloo interpretation of the standard Comes Love. Visit Metropolitan Klezmer’s website.
“The playing is sprightly, with a lot of astute ensemble interplay. Simply put, this is a band with no weak links.”
— George Robinson, Jewish Week
“The powerhouse all-female klezmer sextet combines folk, swing, tango, trance and dance with traditional Yiddish music… Isle of Klezbos (one of the best band names in town!) are six oft-fetching klezmer ladies whose instruments include flugelhorn and accordion and whose recent Brooklyn-recorded album draws on meringues and Brazilian acoustica as well as 1916 Rumanian horras and Ukrainian songs ‘suitable for dancing with a bottle on one's head.’”
— Voice Choices Pick, Village Voice
