ABOUT MOSTLY KOSHER
Mostly Kosher, the acclaimed klezmer gypsy-rock band, radically reconstructs Judaic and American cultural musical roots through ravenous klezmer beats and arresting Yiddish refrains. Mostly Kosher is a musical feast that explodes into a global food-fight of Jazz, Latin, Rock, and Folk. The band has been invited for their third year performing as the first live Jewish music ensemble at the Disneyland Parks Resort. They were credited for “stealing the Festival of Holidays Show” by the popular Fresh Baked Disney podcast, and will be back at Disney for 2018-19 season, as well as returning for their second year at Disney World’s Epcot Center. Find them on social media or on their website.
