THE KLEZMATICS: On Holy Ground



For more than 20 years the Klezmatics have been at the vanguard of the international klezmer revival. The Grammy Award-winning group's innovative, lower Manhattan sensibilities have redefined the boundaries of contemporary Jewish music through nine albums and collaborations with such diverse artists as Garrison Keilor, Arlo Guthrie, Itzhak Perlman and Joshua Nelson. In 2006 the band won a Grammy Award for Best World Music with "Wonder Wheel: Lyrics by Woody Guthrie." Following the group for three years through tours in the U.S., Germany and Poland, this strikingly honest documentary reveals the challenges exceptionally creative musicians face as they strive to make joyous, boundary-breaking music and balance the demands of family, career and their own personalities. Made by the filmmaker who brought us A Cantor's Tale (RJFF 2006).
