Kol Haruach is a Klezmer band, but they are much more than just that. They are known for Klezmer, including Freylakhs, Sirbas, Jocs, Shers, Hussidls, Terkishes and more. They also play Israeli and Russian music. Their American repertoire includes Jazz, Swing, Rock & Roll, and Latin, Waltzes, Cha chas, Salsas, Rhumbas, Merengues and the like. In fact, they challenge you to compare their performances of these other styles with the Klezmer that has made them so well-known.

Their music is very diverse. Because of this flexibility, in addition to performing the music they are best known for, they very often in demand to play events where diversity is sought. In fact, sometimes they will learn new repertoire simply in order to satisfy requests. They enjoy this.

If you are looking for just Klezmer or Israeli, that's fine. However, if you have an interest in the band for a broader spectrum of music beyond Klezmer, Jazz and the repertoire listed on our website, they’d be happy to discuss this with you. They love the challenge.
