This Amsterdam-based group has developed their sound over the past decade into a blend of old-time Klezmer and contemporary Eastern European folk music. With vivid imagery and obvious elements from Greek music, the music of the Gypsies, and Romanian and Slavic styles dating back to the Ottoman Empire, this is a very rich amalgam of joyous, passionate and emotional “good-time” music. Led by the virtuoso violin playing of Joris Van Beek, Ot Azoj includes clarinets, saxophone, bass tuba, flutes, tapan darabuka drums, and two fabulous accordion players. Wedding music, many dance-derived pieces, and melodic Gypsy pieces are part of their wide range of songs.
