Buenos Klezmer

Buenos Klezmer perform uplifting and heart-warming authentic Jewish folk music of the Eastern European shtetl and Sephardic world.

Vocalist Maya Levy weaves a fascinating tale of these long ago worlds while clarinettist Livia Frankish wails, guitarist Eyal Pik serenades and cellist Mayda Narvey straddles the support of stand up bass and the interweaving melodies. With consistently sold-out performances, this is a foot-stomping, heart-warming band.

'Great gig - brilliant music especially Buenos Klezmer'
'A truly magical evening'
Audience reviews from Tsitsit Fringe Festival at Toulouse Lautrec, London

Buenos Klezmer debuted in 2019 at The Jazz Room, London. The quartet met while playing for Shabbat Shira (a participatory musical Friday night song service to mark the start of the Jewish Sabbath at West London Synagogue). Being all of Jewish background, both Sephardi and Ashkenazi, they decided to form an ensemble to play specifically secular Jewish songs and Klezmer instrumental music. They play Yiddish & Ladino songs and Klezmer, spanning the breadth of Jewish secular music and have performed to sell out audiences at venues including several returns to The Jazz Room, JW3, Green Note Camden and OSO Barnes.

Maya Levy - Soprano
Maya Levy was born in New York City. She is a professional singer, songwriter, actor and theatre deviser/ writer, with a Bachelor of Music from the prestigious Oberlin Conservatory, Ohio, (in piano and voice), a Bachelor of Arts in English and Theatre from Oberlin College as well as an MA from The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in Acting and Devised Theatre.

In addition to her work as a Cantorial Soloist at West London Synagogue, her focus of the last 15 years has been on composing pieces of music theatre, song writing and working as a professional performer. Some musical plays include The Adventures of Nellie Bly, about the 19th century reporter and daredevil Nellie Bly (funded by Arts Council England), and The Damsels Most Daring Present The Bravery of Miss Anne and Other Tales of Splendorous Adventures, a piece of comedic, musical, storytelling theatre. Other work ranges from recording NPC voices for Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 (video game) at Pinewood Studios to performing as a guest soloist with The London International Orchestra. Maya’s grandparents were Sephardi Jews from Bulgaria who spoke Ladino (Judeo Espagnol) at home. She grew up around Yiddish speakers in New York City and loves the traditions of both the Sephardi and Ashkenazi world.

Mayda Narvey - Cello
After some years performing and touring with the National Arts Centre Orchestra of Canada, Mayda Narvey relocated to the UK where she established Ismena Collective, a group of musicians and wordsmiths who create performances that integrate words with music. She has composed and arranged for Ismena and performed with them in venues across London and beyond, including King’s Place, St. Martin in the Fields, The Forge Camden, and many others. Over the years she has enjoyed playing her cello in many contexts including solo and chamber recitals, spoken word events, cabarets in the West End of London, and of course, as the string member of Buenos Klezmer. The daughter of Russian Jewish immigrants to Canada, Mayda grew up in a Yiddish-speaking home.

'What a breath of artistic fresh air! I was completely bowled over by the standard of musicianship, the elegance of the programming and the relaxed joyously friendly atmosphere.' Audience reviews, Ismena Collective

Eyal Pik -Guitar
A multi-talented guitarist and singer-songwriter with an MA in commercial music production, Eyal was trained by and has worked with top artists and producers such as Jon Kelly (Paul McCartney, Kate Bush), Sister Bliss (Faithless), Aviv Geffen (Blackfield), ELK (Rita, Mosaic Project) and many more. Being an active professional musician since the age of 14, he has played countless recording sessions, radio and television shows in many countries as well as numerous shows in top venues including the Royal Albert Hall
(playing for members of the Royal family) and City Hall (for the Mayor of London), Camden Assembly, and Tel Aviv’s famous Barby Club. Originally from Tel Aviv (8th generation born in Israel), Eyal comes from an Ashkenazi-Jewish family with origins in Poland, Austria and Jerusalem, growing up surrounded by Jewish tradition, hearing songs and stories in Yiddish, Polish, German and Hebrew.

Livia Frankish - Clarinet
Livia Frankish gained her Bachelor’s Degree from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance under the tutelage of Michael White. Having performed with a number of orchestras and chamber groups, she found her love of Klezmer whilst studying and discovering her identity, spirituality and connection with Judaism. She was fortunate enough to study with Merlin Shepherd, one of the world's leading exponents of traditional klezmer clarinet style and has performed with internationally celebrated cantor, Shulem Lemmer. As well as performing with Buenos Klezmer and other chamber groups, Livia teaches class music in a busy East London secondary school.

Haven't Stopped Dancing Yet

Haven’t Stopped Dancing Yet! put on fabulous, feelgood 70s and 80s disco nights for grown-ups at venues across London and the South East - and we’re delighted to welcome them back again after a funk-tastic sell out night here last year.

HSDY nights are recommended by everyone from Time Out and The Guardian to Stylist and Radio 4 and they have been described as 'Abba collides with Saturday Night Fever in a glorious mash up'.

DJ Lady G will be on the decks playing all your favourite soul, funk and disco tunes. Sancer Lady Boo will be showing you the moves to everything from Car Wash (complete with shiny rags) and Hey Mickey, to the 1979 Gonzales hit, Haven’t Stopped Dancing Yet, after which HSDY take their name.

If you fancy dressing up (it’s not obligatory, but lots do) there are prizes for the best retro outfits, and free sweets and ice pops too.

In the words of Shalamar, it’s going to be 'a night to remember!'

10% profits from HSDY nights go to Cancer Research UK

Party the night away until 12am - with our Cafe Bar also open serving drinks until then!

The Lost Trades

An exciting Folk and Roots Trio who recently released their second album Petrichor.

The Lost Trades are a vocal harmony trio with a cool Laurel Canyon vibe. Three Wiltshire based singer songwriters (Jamie R Hawkins, Phil Cooper and Tamsin Quin) were brought together by a mutual love of modern folk and roots music, and joined forces in late 2019 for a three part harmony, modern folk adventure.

With a sound that is reminiscent of the California folk scene of the late 60s/early 70s, their vocal harmonies have been described as flawless, spine tingling and magical.

After a global pandemic cut short their first tour after just a single sold out gig, the band retreated to their songwriting rooms to work on their debut album, 'The Bird, The Book & The Barrel'. The album was released in June 2021 and was well received, spending 8 months in the Official UK Folk Albums Chart.

The follow up 'Petrichor' was released in March 2023 and immediately followed suit, entering the chart at #31.

A live performance involves easy interchanging of instruments, with each of the three playing guitar, bass and percussion at different points. There's always a fun intimacy to the show, with the three engaging in comfortable repartee with each other and the audience like a group of old friends.
