Tantz deliver a powerful concoction of hard hitting Klezmer and manic beats. Formed in the summer of 2010, Tantz began as 4 Leeds-based musicians all with a shared love of Klezmer music. The aim was to explore this centuries old music in an up to date and fresh way, not treating it as a shelved artefact from times gone by but as a genre that was current and new. Klezmer is both madly raucous and a hugely impassioned genre of music, and for centuries it was played in shtetls (little Jewish villages) across Eastern Europe by travelling musicians who would bring their raw musical skills and wayward ways to any village that needed music for an occasion. As a band Tantz aim to carry on this tradition, playing Klezmer music with the power and raw emotion that it deserves.
