Nu Haven Kapelye is Southern New England’s largest Klezmer ensemble, numbering anywhere from 12-30 musicians. A cross between a big band and a Klezmer orchestra, the Kapelye plays innovative arrangements of Klezmer and Yiddish music from Romania, Hungary, Bessarabia, and other Eastern European locales. It isn’t just the size of this group that makes it so very exciting it’s the energy of their performances, the diversity of age, experience, background and especially the commitment of the musicians that comes across in their music. The group recorded and released their first CD, What’s Nu, in 2016.
