According to comedian Robin Williams, if you can hear the music of Chava Alberstein and the Klezmatics -- who will be at Montclair State University's Memorial Auditorium on Saturday, Dec. 4, at 7:30 p.m. -- "and not see God, you're @#%&* blind!"
The Klezmatics play radical Jewish roots music for the 21st century, reinventing klezmer as only adventurous musicians in New York City would. Their arrangements and contemporary compositions combine Jewish identity and mysticism with a contemporary zeitgeist and a postmodern aesthetic. Since 1986, the Klezmatics have celebrated the ecstatic nature of Yiddish music, creating music by turns frenetic, spiritual and danceable.
