About
Although it originates in the tradition of the Ashkenazi Jews of Southeastern Europe, the genre was mostly influenced by Romanian, Greek, Ukrainian, Polish, and Turkish music. The repertoire consists of instrumental pieces, connected with the folklore of Reform Judaism, and of songs performed in Yiddish, belonging to the tradition of Orthodox Judaism.

A beautiful experience
Oct 2020
This was such a beautiful experience, I cannot recommend it highly enough! The venue is small so you really get an intimate concert. We went for the Choping concert. The pianist, Radosław Goździkowski played wonderfully some famous and less known Chopin pieces: Nocturnes, Mazurkas, Polonaise... High quality music so moving it brings tears to the eyes.
We were welcomed into the place very pleasantly and had a wonderful time. The venue has air conditioning and is clean, well managed.
I don’t think it’s possible to not enjoy it, even if you are not into classical music.

Great klezmer concert
Feb 2020 • Couples
Booked online at cracowconcerts.com, the venue is quite small and plain however the passion with which the duo performed was impressive. The violinist played with verve whilst the guitarist played well and sang in Yiddish with gusto. Definitely worth a visit.

Not more than OK
Sep 2019 • Family
As a matter of fact I was expecting more ... a little more Jewish music by Klezmer, the violinist was excellent guitarist who was also the singer ,average, the small hall is beautiful but without air conditioning and although it was 18 degrees outside, the hall was warm as in the sauna, the operation of two small fans did not affect the sweat almost Of all of us, I've been to klezmer shows around the world and it's very mediocre

An accordion, clarinet and bass....all superb musician with extraordinary talent and energy. For one hour we were in another world, and our group of 53, 21 and 14 year old loved the concert. The musicians gave us two encores! This concert was joyful and inspiring, a beautiful way to close our visit to Poland that had very much be focused on Jewish wonderful culture, courage and strength.

An emotional experience
Nov 2018 • Couples
Most people identify Klezmer music as Jewish, perhaps this has become so and perhaps it only appears so. Certainly the name, Klezmer, comes from the Hebrew words Klei (instruments) and Zemer (song). The origins are far more romantic than that however. The long, drawn out notes have their origin in a medley of all the perfumes of Arabia and Turkic music. Add to this Romanian and Gypsy music and you're getting close.
What is clear is that it is extremely emotional music running through all the gamuts from heartbreak to triumph. During the course of one concert you can experience a lifetime of feeling.

How much more so in Krakow where Klezmer belonged largely, although by no means exclusively, to the 65,000 Jews of whom only 150 survive following the Holocaust.

Di Galitzianer Klezmorim, a small group, plays Klezmer music every Thursday at 14 Slawkowska Street with all the heart of the human being.

If you are visiting Krakow and want to feel a part of its past, not just bricks and statues and not just memorials and bars, you would do well to add this to your cultural enrichment.

Wonderful concert!
Aug 2018 • Couples
It has been over 15 years since we heard live klezmer music when my oldest son and his wife decided to have a klezmer band at their wedding in Chicago. So my wife and I arranged to attend a klezmer concert on our first night in Cracow. The venue was a very short walk from where we were staying near the main square and the group of 3 musicians, Di Galitzyaner Klezmorim, Mariola Spiewak (clarinet), Grzegorz Spiewak (accordion) and Rafal Seweryniak (double bass) were wonderful. My only disappointment was that there were not more people in the audience, just over 20, as Chopin concerts that we had attended in Warsaw were almost full.

Our concert was a duet, guitar and violin. Excellent musicians. We also heard a piano recital here. A wonderful way to experience Polish classical and Jewish music in a pleasant setting near the main square

Amazing musicians
Sep 2017 • Friends
This place is by far better than the Klezmer Hois -. a restaurant in Kaimierz where they serve expensive food and present avarage klezmer musi; a renuine tourst trapc. This place is great; you pay 50 PLN for a one hour concert with two fantastic musicians, a violinist and a guitarist. They played fantastic and the music was amazing. Unfortunately very few tourist are aware of the place. The start concerts Tuesday, Saturdays and Sundays at 17.30. If you like live music this is the place to go in Krakow. Find it off Rynek Glowny, go down the Slawkowska Street until you find number 14; not very good signed. The venue is on the second floor.

A river of Jewish music
Jun 2017
We attended this wonderful concert preformed in the 7th century synagogue by four talented musicians. This lively Jewish music concert was the prefect way to bring back the rhythm of life after a day at Auschwitz .
Music throughout the centuries has been the elixir of the soul and this concert is no different.
Venue : Isaac synagogue, Krupa st.
Time: 6pm
Cost: 60zl
