THE KUGELS

Take 3 former NZSO players, an Arts Laureate composer, a jazz bass player, and a charismatic singer, and you have the Kugels! The ensemble has been together for 10 years now, and has completed nationwide tours for Arts on Tour NZ and Chamber Music New Zealand, as well as performing as guest artists at several NZ festivals.

With passion and sensitivity, the Kugels play traditional Klezmer music and original works by their in-house Arts Foundation Laureate composer/accordionist Ross Harris. Klezmer is the folk music of Jewish people from Eastern and Central Europe and it speaks to the heart of oppressed people everywhere. This genre is enjoying a huge rebirth of interest and popularity. The music is wild, passionate and haunting and makes you want to dance!
