Heartland Klezmorim

Artist Information

Heartland Klezmorim, Michigan’s only traditional klezmer band, began their musical journey in 2006 performing old-time klezmer music. Since that time, their repertoire has expanded to performing jazz interpretations of klezmer music, music from the Yiddish Theater and performing as a pit band for a vaudeville show. Heartland Klezmorim observes the traditions in klezmer music as well as adding a few new sounds. At this year’s Capital City Film Festival, the band will accompany Charlie Chaplin’s How to Make Movies as well as films by Man Ray and Art Clokey’s Gumbasia.
