ChickenFat Klezmer Orchestra is a fun and energetic band that is passionate about bringing diverse musical styles from around the world to Chicago. We start with traditional klezmer music, and add to it from our many influences including Balkan and Mediterranean tunes and songs sung in Ladino, Yiddish, Hebrew, and Russian.

 

Check out our videos or stream some tunes!  Our digital album is available to download at Bandcamp.
