Bella's Bartok, Chris Kasper CL Recommends

Price: $10

Klezmer originated with Jewish musicians who played raucous music for shtetl celebrations and ghetto get-togethers. That means Klezmer’s been pretty punk all along, so it makes perfect sense that the brand of Klezmer punk Bella’s Bartok creates is a thing. This sextet’s energetic rock sounds like a New Orleans brass ensemble running breakneck through a gypsy circus. The name comes from the Hungarian composer Béla Viktor János Bartók, who dared to incorporate folk melodies into classical music.
