About Breslov Bar Band:
From melancholy midnight meditations to funky/punky affirmations of the One, the Breslov Bar Band explores the Eastern-European musical expressions of the Breslov Hasidim from the traditional to the contemporary.
Blending Klezmer/Hassidic music with Middle-Eastern, Rock, Jazz, Reggae, Punk, and other musical styles in an organic manner, the band puts on a high-energy show that is both visually and musically compelling. Members are
powerful improvisers and no two performances are alike. In addition to keyboards and vocals, BBB bandleader Binyomin Ginzberg plays the vibrandoneon — a mouth blown variation on the Argentinian bandoneon — which adds an intriguingly exotic component to the group’s sound.
