The Rebbe’s Orkestra Klezmer & Judaic band

Incorporating the sounds and rhythms of Jewish
music from many parts of the world, The Rebbe’s
Orkestra brings a unique style to Klezmer–
the instrumental dance music rooted in the
Jewish wedding traditions of Eastern Europe.
The band’s repertoire also includes folk songs
in many languages including Yiddish, Ladino
(Judeo-Spanish), Hebrew, Russian, Arabic, 
Hungarian, Romanian and Romany-the
language of the Roma (Gypsies).
Traditional fiddle tunes and songs from
New Mexico, instrumental pieces from the
Middle-East, as well as traditional music from the Mediterranean and the Balkans are also part
of the band’s musical explorations. Recording and performing throughout the southwest since 1996,
The Rebbe’s Orkestra has been revisiting the
ways in which Jewish musicians have interacted
with surrounding musical traditions over
the centuries. From Spain to Iraq,
Poland to the Mediterranean:
The Rebbe's Orkestra plays music as widely
divergent as the geography and yet with surprisingly
similar themes—enough to make any
"Rebbe” and everyone in the audience
jump & dance for joy. 

In 2010, the band released its first CD
“Klezmer y mas” to wide-spread acclaim.

The Rebbe's Orkestra personnel:
Beth Cohen-violin/mandolin/tenor banjo/vocals;
Barbara Friedman-bass/tambura/vocals; 
Randy Edmunds-guitar/tambura/vocals;
Debo Orlofsky-accordion/vocals;
& percussionist Mary Masuk.
