This Hanukkah, all will have a chance to shake their tushie to the music of The Isle of Klezbos, at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 5, at the North Columbia Schoolhouse, according to a release.

This soulful, fun-loving powerhouse all-women’s klezmer sextet plays Neo-traditional folk dance, mystical melodies, Yiddish swing and retro tango, late Soviet-era Jewish drinking songs, re-grooved standards, and genre-defying originals. 

“A concert that crosses so many genres you’ll lose track — but who’s counting?” — The Oregonian.

New York City-based Isle of Klezbos approaches tradition with playful irreverence and deepest respect. Now celebrating two decades together, the Isle of Klezbos has toured from Vienna to Vancouver since 1998.

The band’s repertoire ranges from rambunctious to entrancing.

The group is noted for their tight yet adventurous sound, lush arrangements, luscious compositions, and solos that swing the Yiddish stratosphere.
