Klezmer is the folk music of the Ashkenazi Jews that originated in southeastern Europe. It found a home in Moscow with the band Gefilte Trout, which took the Yiddish name for fish and added Idaho’s beloved trout.The band was formed by Carla Chandler, a violin and old-time fiddle player, who immersed herself in klezmer music in 2006. The group released its first album in 2014 and has played at shows, dances, weddings and parties around the region, including the Spokane Folk Festival, where it is scheduled to perform Saturday. On Sunday, the group will play at a CD release party in Moscow celebrating its latest, and final, album “Klezmer Caravan.”
Sunday’s free show will feature songs in Ladino (Judeo-Spanish), Yiddish, Hebrew and Roma. Music is from 7-9 p.m. at One World Cafe, 533 Main St., Moscow.
