The Klezbians at the Schools Prom

As the Music For Youth Schools Prom gets under way, Classic FM's Tim Lihoreau has been chatting to some of the performers. In this video he meets the brilliant Klezbians.

The Klezbians play traditional Klezmer and Gypsy music with a twist. Made up entirely of music students, studying degrees ranging from Creative Music Technology to Popular Music to Music Performance and Composition, the band formed through a world music module on their course at University College Falmouth.

Classic FM's Tim Lihoreau met the band backstage at the Royal Albert Hall just before their performance at the Schools Prom. They told him all about Klezmer music and treated him to quick performance of one of their songs.
