Kruzenshtern & Parohod
Led by charismatic Igor Krutogolov, this Tel Aviv-based band is a genuine stage dynamo and dynamite in one. Self-avowed practitioners of Klezmercore, they play a stunning mixture of Klezmer music, rock, punk, jazz and improvised music. They are, in a nutshell, a phenomenon that cannot be missed.
Imagine a line-up consisting of a clarinetist, a bass player, a percussionist and an accordionist. Add Krutogolov’s signature vocals (the vocalist sings also with Igor Krutogolov’s Karate Band and with Toy Orchestra) and you will hear the inimitable music of Kruzenshtern & Parohod.
