ESKE – East St Kilda Klezmer Ensemble

ESKE, or the East St Kilda Klezmer Ensemble feature local musicians Gid Preiss (accordion), Alex Burkoy (violin) and Adam Starr (guitar), as well as tourists from over the river, Tony Hicks (clarinet) and Tom Lee (bass). You may have seen these musicians playing in YID!, Melbourne Ska Orchestra, Husky, Jazz Party, Alter Jazz Ensemble, or heard them on SBS in the documentary “Outback Rabbis”.
ESKE ruminate on old Klezmer standards while adding a little dub step, tarantella, tango, and a Peruvian twist.
