When Klezmofobia performs, a party is guaranteed to ensue, with singing, dancing, listening, and kissing, as the audience is made to feel at home and as though they have been specially invited. Klezmofobia is one of the few Danish orchestras that have played live on Mexican TV, danced around the little mermaid statue at EXPO in Beijing, performed on Svalbard after having driven a snowmobile in -20 degree Celsius, and a range of other quirky and enviable events.
The band released their first album in 2006 and won a DMA for the best world album of the year. They have released a total of 3 albums. The band writes most of their music themselves, which is inspired by the Eastern European Jewish folk music KLEZMER. Songs are in Yiddish and the audience sings along as though the concert was one big family celebration.
The Eastern European Jewish folk music genre klezmer sounds particularly refreshing in Klezmofobia's interpretation, and the band always manages to renew itself. You are served a broad selection of atmospheres, and under the Eastern European melancholy streams happiness and sorrow in slow mournful ballads and upbeat instrumental klezmer party songs.
The singer Channe Nussbaum is the face of the band, and continues to prove her significant singing talent, which has made her the unofficial Northern European queen of klezmer. Her grand vocals are indisputable, and she truly manages to break through to the audience.
