Don Kipper at the Lakeside Theatre

Uncover the world of Eastern European Jewish and Roma music making as part of the University of Essex's Holocaust Memorial Day, from hectic hongas and frantic freylekhs, to tranquil Dobridens and soulful Doinas. Over the course of the evening Don Kipper will tell you stories of great Klezmer musicians (the Klezmorim) of the past and bring the tradition to life.

Don Kipper root themselves deeply in the traditions that surround them. They explore radical interpretations and taut arrangements full of complex harmonies, rhythms and imaginative improvisation.
