“Oi-Va-Voi represent the cutting edge of new wave klezmer. Their unique sound infuses the traditional music of Sephardi Jews, Transylvanian gypsies and the Ashkenazi shtetl with the dub and breakbeats of urban London. Odessan freylekhs, Yemeni devotionals and Macedonian wedding tunes explode effortlessly into drum and bass driven tracks. Hip young Londoners, Oi-Va-Voi are the subject of a recent international documentary film showcasing the best of contemporary British culture. They have recorded original music for film, theatre and BBC2’s South Bank Show. The eclecticism of their music means klezmer Voi-style is not a musical sacrament played only in hushed auditoriums. Oi-Va-Voi’s musical wanderings have taken the spirit of klezmer to club nights in Amsterdam, to New York’s avant-garde jazz scene, to Robert Wyatt’s Meltdown at the Royal Festival Hall and to Antwerp International Festival of Jewish Music.” Contact:INFO or bookings
