Éléonore Weill, Zoe Aqua and Ira Khonen Temple from Tsibele

Thursday, June 10, 2021 at 7:30 pm

A virtual performance with Tsibele, a new-traditional klezmer band based in Brooklyn, New York. Their repertoire comes from Moldovan/Bessarabian music and the music of Jewish migrants from Europe to America as well as original songs. They see klezmer as a subversive music form and are activist-oriented in their performance platforms. Pronounced "tsih-beh-leh," tsibele means onion in Yiddish.

Presented as part of the Queer Jewish Arts Festival, a series of programs celebrating LGBTQIA+ stories and experiences through film, theater, music, and literature.

About the Artists:

Each band member brings their own unique take on klezmer music. Flutist/ vocalist Eléonore Weill brings the earthy sounds of the village in southern France, where she grew up playing hurdy-gurdy in the fields - she is also an excellent dance leader. Violinist Zoë Aqua has a passion for pedagogy and for transcribing hundred-year-old klezmer violin recordings. Accordionist Ira Khonen Temple brings a decade of work bringing music to activist spaces and vice versa.

To maximize your experience, we recommend you take the full multidisciplinary journey with us.
