Also sitting in on the klezmer playing session at the Boston skillshare at Ash's insistence. I hover at the door and then walk in, and I have to say loved how it sounds so... Jewish.

Teacher is playing an accordian, there's a guy on saxaphone, a girl on a trombone, a girl on flute, and Ash on ukulele and a guy on a sorta large triangle shaped ukulele type thing.

And then when they lay, it's all familiar, though I have heard almost no actual klezmer in my life, just the traditional melodies that are part of it.

Mostly in 2, 4, 3, our leader says, but all kinds of different rhythms.

The idea that there's some pure form of klezmer is ridiculous.

Like the Gypsy musicians, professional traveling musicians all over Europe. It's like world music before anyone knew what world music meant.

The hora in klezmer is limping, not the full power hava nagila type.

It doesn't have to be square, but I like the square chassidic style.

It's a very downbeat oriented music, stomping the earth.

Cello, fiddle, bass, and a type of cymbal.

Influence of military music from musicians getting drafted into Tzar's army.

In old European style wooden flute was more significant than clarinet.
