March/April 2004 -- Klezmer Night in Holland extravaganza

(And we don't use the word "extravaganza" lightly.)

For the past several years, Di Naye Kapelye has traveled the length and breadth of the Netherlands, sharing herring and trappist (strong ale) with every Hungarian or Yiddish speaker in every town. We've grown quite fond of the Dutch, whose tolerance for cigarettes, billiards, and energetic Carpathian music is hard to describe.

On this tour, Di Naye Kapelye joins up with some remarkable musicians: Lerner and Moguilevsky (Klezmer en Buenos Aires), the Klezmorim (reunited by co-founder Lev Liberman in celebration of the group's 30th anniversary), de Coup (a raucous street band from Tilburg, Holland), and emcee/badkhn Ralph Levie. For more details about Klezmer Night in Holland, contact Stichting Kultoer (Tilburg).
