The Ken Maltz /Sy Kushner Klezmer Duo
Two Lifelong Journeys Through Jewish Music
Ken Maltz and Sy Kushner‘s combined years of experience in the field of Jewish music is more than 80 years. From time to time, they have collaborated on each others’ projects, Ken recording and performing as a guest artist with the Sy Kushner Jewish Music Ensemble and assisting in the release of Sy’s very popular klezmer music transcription fake books, while Sy has performed with Ken’s bands including Kapelye, one of the first bands of the klezmer revival. They have come together as a duo to perform lesser known, but beautiful works within the klezmer repertoire and beyond.
