Our Eggrolls, Egg Creams and Empanadas Festival begins with a rollicking klezmer march from one end of Eldridge Street to the other. Along the way, visitors join in the fun, dancing, clapping and cheering as the musicians wend their way down the street. Dmitri Zisl Slepovitch will lead the klezmer collective Litvakus, joined by Zoe Aqua (violin), Taylor Bergren-Chrisman (bass), Joshua Camp (accordion), Sam Weisenberg (percussion), and Steve Weintraub (klezmer dance instructor). Klezmer music emerged from Yiddish-speaking communities in Eastern Europe in the nineteenth century, drawing elements from both folk music and Jewish sacred music. Today, this unique music form plays a vital role, bringing together generations of Jewish Americans to sing, dance and celebrate while thrilling audiences of all backgrounds.
