Kings of Klezmer

Los Angeles, California

From the Wild, Wild West of the Americas to the deepest forests of Eastern Europe come the Kings of Klezmer! This unique band is led by clarinetist/saxophonist Leo Chelyapov—a Russian-born musician who immigrated to Los Angeles in 1992. The music of the Kings of Klezmer is an original blend of different styles: latin-jazz, rock, funk, world beat and, of course - klezmer!
