Oscillating between the roots of Klezmer and Modern music ; passing through improvisations, with some reminders and tributes to Movies and TV soundtracks, The Klez Têtes Quartet from Paris (that one can translate by the “Klez Heads”), is one of the most creative Klezmer bands in Europe. A concert of The Klez Têtes is a kind of musical show with refined arrangements & compositions, including short stories (in English) inserted between the pieces. Those poetic short texts are based on the essence of Yiddish Culture. Through their music and their words, The Klez Têtes are communicating with a strong sense of humor about the place of the human being in today’s World.
