Klezmocracy is an exciting musical hybrid which uses acoustic instruments and electronics in a seamless and hypnotic way. The ensemble delights in fusing modern rhythms and harmonies with other musical traditions, including Latin, cabaret, jazz, rock and Middle-Eastern. The result is a driving, passionate musical blend which has been gaining a reputation in the Pacific Northwest for its spontaneous fun, rhythmic intensity and its uplifting soulfulness.

Klezmocracy has been the house band for the monthly radio show, LIVEWIRE!, on Oregon Public Broadcasting since its inception in 2004, and its members have played and toured nationally with artists such as Tony Starlight, Alfredo Muro's Latin Ensemble, the Oregon Ballet Theatre, Bill Frisell, John Zorn, Aretha Franklin, and Portland legend Mel Brown.
