Kharkiv Klezmer Band

The Kharkov Klezmer Band is a klezmer group from the Ukraine. They are known for their skilled classical playing style and were most recently featured in the 2006 Toronto Ashkenaz Festival.

The leader of the Kharkov Klezmer Band is Stanislav Raiko. A Ukrainian native, he was first inspired to the klezmer tradition by a video of a klezmer show. A classical violinist, he had to listen to recordings of old klezmer pieces in order to learn the genre, as an oppressive government and traditional education system prevented him from learning about the music by any other means. He is extremely committed to maintaining what he sees as a rapidly declining tradition in old-style clarinet playing, and Stas had to travel across the country to look through libraries for old pieces of repertoire.

Other band members include Gennady Fomin, on clarinet, Valery Polonskiy on accordion, Mikhail Krupnikov on vocals and tambourine, and Abbas Zulfugarov on double bass.

...if we could hear what we say – probably, we would keep silent. But – we do speak. And what is then left for our words but for the echo of our pace? What is then left for our eyes but for memory? And who are we then if not prophets? – for we walk in a circle, that is why we as though know everything in advance...
