JUNE 18, 2009: NOZEN

Steeped in the chassidic and klezmer musical traditions and percolating with the avant-garde, Nozen’s influences range from John Coltrane to John Zorn’s Massada and from old style klezmer players like David Tarras and Naftuleh Brandwein to Frank London and David Krakauer. Anxious, curious, eclectic. Damian Nisenson (saxophones and composition), Jean-Felix Mailloux (doublebass), Ziya Tabassian (percussion), Luzio Altobelli (accordion).

KlezKanada in conjunction with The Montreal Yiddish Theater Festival presents a week-long program of Jewish music. From June 18th to June 25th KlezKanada brings its long-standing tradition of late-night KlezKabarets to the Segal Centre. The program will explore the diversity that exists in the ever-growing Jewish music world. And of course each night’s featured act will be followed by an open mic jam session, so bring your instruments and voice. See below for the schedule and description of acts.
