PERFORMANCE | CHUTNEY is a klezmer band with a twist. Drawing on their Eastern European and Middle Eastern heritage, they present a hot and spicy mix of original compositions plus modern takes on traditional dance tunes. Comprising well-known Sydney musicians Ben Adler (violin), Paul Khodor (keyboard), Ben Samuels (clarinet), Yiss Mill (percussion) and Oscar Gross (bass), the musicians’ on-stage chemistry is electric, traversing styles from gypsy jazz to tango, folk to rock, classical to funk, east to west.

For this show, they are joined by Australian musical theatre performer extraordinaire, Doron Chester. Most recently seen touring as Iago in Disney's "Aladdin", Doron will serve up Chutnified renditions of some of your favourite tunes from Fiddler on The Roof that will have you dancing and rolling in the aisles!

With generous helpings of violin schmaltz, blisteringly fast solos, driving rhythms and toe tapping classics, there's no better way to send off Limmud Oz 2021!
