Take three former members of the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, a top New Zealand composer and arts laureate, and a shared passion for klezmer music – and you have The Kugels.

The folk idiom of the Jewish people, klezmer was originally played at weddings and other celebrations in Eastern and Central Europe. The music gained popularity in America with the arrival of Yiddish-speaking immigrants in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, assimilating jazz elements into the mix.

The Kugels’ repertoire includes ‘original’ pre-jazz klezmer, influenced by revivalists this century, as well as music brought to the US by Soviet and Israeli immigrants in the 1980s.

A night of traditional and original tunes played with sensitivity and passion.

Composed by Ross Harris (NZ Arts Laureate, 2014)
Performed by Ross Harris, Debbie Rawson, Robin Perkins, and Jaqueline Norden
