Di Fidl-Kapelye, Trumpets for Di Fidl-Kapelye

One hundred twenty-six strings used to be the standard setting for a klezmer band: one cimbalom, two fiddles, one cello and one double bass. These days this setting is rarely found, especially within an all-female setting. Di Fidl-Kapelye from Amsterdam are the exception. 'Di Fidl-Kapely are an ensemble that is fresh and creative, yet thoroughly rooted in the best of the klezmer tradition.' (Deborah Strauss) 'They are clearly hewing their own sound from these sources. And it works, oh does it work... If you have a chance to catch these folks live (you lucky Europeans), you should.' (Ronan Tsimbler/Roger Reid)
