Top-notch contemporary Klezmer! Seven-piece band Oysland embody the new generation of Yiddish roots music, serving up an exuberant and soulful cocktail of wedding songs and lamenting lullabies. They swoop through centuries of traditional pieces gleaned from Eastern Europe with panache, adding wider scopes from the Balkans, whilst preserving all the essential & original ingredients. Expect, heartfelt melodies, foot-stomping beats and echoes of a bygone era. A firm feature on the London Klezmer/Balkan scene they play regularly at venues including Jamboree, Hootenanny and Green Note.
