"Dynamic and authentic" (Time Out)

LKQ brings you klezmer at its most beguiling and seductive. The subtleties of the original tradition, combined with a kick-the-chairs-over ability to party.

Formed in 2009, the band is popular throughout the UK, has had six sell-out tours in Australia, as well as performing in Belgium, Brazil, Finland, Germany, Holland, Latvia, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland, and has broadcast live on BBC Radio 3 & 6, BBC TV, and ABC Radio. Read more
