Big Galut(e) is a quintet of like-minded and like-hearted musicians who love to make people laugh, then make them cry, all while exploring a unique and fascinating repertoire of Jewish music from five continents and six centuries. Noted by critics for "the virtuosity of its members," and lauded as "vivacious," "joyful," "jubilant," "a real treat for open minds," and an "alleged Klezmer band," Big Galut(e) has played as soloists with orchestras, at colleges and universities from California to Ohio, on chamber music series from Hawaii to New York, at the National Yiddish Book Center, and at synagogues, temples, and JCCs nationwide.
