Music for your Monday

I am thrilled to have recently come across the sounds of the Amsterdam Klezmer Band, a group known for combining klezmer (Eastern European Jewish music) with dub, jazz and other contemporary sounds.

Here is "The Immigrant Song" from their album Balkan Fever (it ends at just over 3:00). Listen for the "oys" on the backbeats (2 and 4), which is characteristic of reggae and ska.
