Concert Meister Series presents DanzaNova

DanzaNova is a virtuoso world/folk/klezmer quintet formed by composer/accordionist Ronn Yedidia in 2009. The other 4 members of DanzaNova include violinist Dmitriy Fisch, guitarist Giacomo La Vita, bassist Eddy Khaimovich and percussionist Yuval Edoot. The ensemble explores and performs ethnic dance music originating mainly from the Middle East, Eastern & Central Europe and Latin America. In addition, Ronn Yedidia has composed a series of his own dance tunes entitled KlezDances especially for DanzaNova. The quintet's emphasis is on stylistic versatility and chamber unity, and the players display their many creative abilities in segments of original free improvisation - blending ethnic and contemporary elements, and executing them with idiosyncratic virtuosity. DanzaNova has performed at Merkin Hall, Bargemusic, ArtEcho Center, and Watchung Arts Center. The Epoch Times stated "it was pure ethnic music which left the audience ecstatic with boundless pleasure!"
