Del Mar Cultural Arts opened the First Thursdays season Sept. 6 with the unique and celebrated Hot Pstrami! Hot Pstromi’s sound is a fusion of traditional klezmer, new Jewish music, Roma, Hasidic, world beat and Balkan music noted for long improvisational breaks.
Yale Strom (violin) is one of the world’s leading ethnographer-artists of klezmer and Roma music and history. Since organizing his band in 1981, his works have been performed by the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra, San Diego Chamber Orchestra, Hausmann Quartet, Burdick-Thorne String Quartet and the Ostrava Philharmonic of the Czeck Republic.
