TUESDAY 21 NOVEMBER - 8:00 PM
An exquisite mix of modern Polish music, klezmer, contemporary jazz and chamber classical music. Polish trio Kroke (Yiddish for Kraków) perform the ‘best of’ the band’s most popular songs from a stunning 30-year career.
Kroke were initially associated with klezmer music with strong Balkan influences. They are heavily influenced by jazz, contemporary and ethnic music, infused with their own stunning improvisations. The trio have honed a unique style which has attracted attention from renowned artists and audiences the world over.
In 1993 Steven Spielberg invited the band to Jerusalem to perform at the Survivor’s Reunion ceremony. They have since worked with Peter Gabriel, Nigel Kennedy, and featured on the soundtrack for David Lynch’s Inland Empire. In recent years the band has also collaborated with the likes of Anna Maria Jopek, Edyta Geppert, Talila, and Tomasz Stańko, and appeared at some of the world’s most prestigious music festivals.
