Troika Klezmer Kabaret

Experience a rip-roaring musical odyssey, with music from Yiddish Odessa to Cossack Russia and 1930s Paris.

Since their formation in Liverpool in 2015, Troika Klezmer Kabaret have gained recognition for their eclectic repertoire.

They offer a dashing musical journey, from the dark dens of Yiddish Odessa to the hot club swing of stylish Cafe Society in Django Reinhardt's 1930s Paris. The group also explores the music from the wild and savage hinterland of Cossack Russia in the 1890s.

Narrated by witty ad-libbing bandleader Wallace Fields, Troika Klezmer Kabaret present a diverse and nostalgic programme with innovation, sophistication, and thrilling virtuosity.
