"Geiger: Ganze Velt (febuary 09)"

”You can easily call the Danish klezmer-band Klezmofobia a success story and a funny one of its kind ... this modern klezmer, which You normally can import from highly specialized labels like John Zorn Tzadik, suddenly had a strong Danish Representative ... The music was actually ... fuckin great.”
- Geiger.dk, Rasmus Steffensen


"“…Music like strong coffee – Klezmofobia thrilled the crowd”"

Please see link - Live review, Hessisch-Niedersächsische Allgemeine, local German newspaper, 09.05.2009


""...Eyeopening and growing vocal. And then... Speed""

"...Eyeopening and growing vocal. And then... Speed. People start jumping. Channe Nussbaum dances in al her fantastic womanliness and the clarinet and the trumpet seems to be in some kind of duel, a klezmer showdown, where everybode wins. Oi, oi, oi!" - Live-review in Information, nationwide Danish newspaper, June 2008


"”Danish world-class Klezmer”"

Headline of a two-page article in leading Danish newspaper - Politiken, 16.1.2009


"“Fiddler on a surf-board - Extraordinary competent second album from the danish klezmerband Klezmofobia”"

“…A warmblooded danish-jewish diva in a sensual declaration of love to her former Palestinian lover. A band consisting of anything but lost folk musicians escaping over the fence in an intoxicating stream of surfrock, ska and hints to serbian farmer-rock, played as if it were a slivovitz-affected day on the marketplace in Guca. And at the same time solidly connected to the roots of danish folkmusic…. Welcome to the world of Klezmofobia… It is an excellent album. Spiel mit mir, Klezmofobia…” - INFORMATION, nationwide Danish newspaper, by reviewer Torben Holleufer


"Klezmofobia"

KLEZMOFOBIA - the award winning Danish klezmer orchestra - takes music to places it has never been. With an
energetic mixture of tradition and renewal, the orchestra has already reached a large audience. Cheerful melancholy in
Yiddish, a powerful jumble of old klezmer elements, combined with modern rock beats is what makes the uniqueness of
the orchestra. - FMK.NU
