Sukke unites three leading members of the European klezmer scene under a single roof. Three individuals, top-flight musicians with deep roots in Yiddish music, who discovered and learned to appreciate one another on the stages of international klezmer and Yiddish festivals, and then decided to focus their diverse talents and backgrounds on a common project: the first European klezmer band. Standards and rarities from the East European instrumental repertoire and original music featuring lyrics by Yiddish poet Michael Wex combine in a unique and evocative sound that is like nothing else in the Yiddish music world.
