Biography

3 celebrated albums. One Danish World Music Award for debut 'Tantz'! More than 40,000 albums sold. We think it’s clear - Klezmofobia is one of Denmark’s greatest Klezmer bands.

A vibrant, fiery celebration. Klezmofobia formed in 2004 and soon made a name for innovating traditional Jewish Klezmer with crazy spirit, drawing on the musical culture of Eastern Europe, the Balkans and Gypsy music.

Besides award winning debut 'Tantz!' from 2006, Klezmofobia released 'Ganze Welt' in 2008 and 'Kartushnik' in 2012, touring each album all over the world. At last count they have played over 500 concerts, including a live-streamed TV appearance in Mexico’s Animal Nocturno. Most recently Klezmofobia produced the music for movie 2 Days in New York with Julie Delphy and Chris Rock.

Album description

Klezmofobia’s third album sees the band mature further, and test their musical limits. You can hear it from the first track “Yommi” – there’s melancholy, eruptions and life experience here, as well as their most beautiful playing to date. And it isn’t without it’s moments of humour...

Whilst they bring their characteristic energy and edge, this is perhaps Klezmofobia’s most reflective album with more atmospheric songs, greater attention to detail and exquisite production from Dragi Šestić, known for his good work with Mostar Sevdah Reunion, Balkans' answer to Buena Vista Social Club. A magical, midnight spell.

Album description

On their second album Klezmofobia pushed their sound even further than debut 'Tantz'!, with intense and fiery songs moving through emotions with passion – still keeping true to the Klezmer spirit.

A very positive Danish magazine, ‘Gaffa’, described the album as: “Party time...for a short while I could have been easily persuaded to join the gypsy life – you know, living under the open sky, dancing wildly around a bonfire at night, playing tough and flirting shamelessly with girls in their swinging skirts”. We couldn’t agree more – let’s dance!

Album description

This might just make you dizzy with joy. Their debut, 'Tantz!' won the 2007 Danish World Album Award and was the beginning of the crazy Klezmofobia story. We’ve never heard traditional Jewish Klezmer like this before, playing so expertly and explosively with surf, rock, jazz and Balkan. This is music to go wild to. This is Klezmer for the 21st century.
