The Broken Sound, a feature-length documentary about The Other Europeans, is now available! Watch or download it online or order the DVD directly from this website!


The Other Europeans is an international project that brings together 14 musicians from 8 countries to explore the common roots of klezmer and lautari music.

Funded in 2008-09 by the EU, the project was created and directed by Alan Bern for Yiddish Summer Weimar and other music e.V. in partnership with the Jewish Culture Festival in Krakow and the KlezMore festival in Vienna.
In addition to concerts throughout Europe and North America, the band has produced an award-winning CD ("Splendor"), been the subject of a feature-length documentary film ("The Broken Sound"), and received a Best Practices in Favor of the Roma Community award from the European Commission.
In 2015, we are committed to continuing our work together in spite of logistic and financial challenges, and we are looking for opportunities for financial support to make that possible.

Dear Friends & Supporters!
We just played three wonderful concerts in Helsinki - one by the klezmer ensemble, one by the lautar ensemble, and one all together. Many, many thanks to Eva Jacobs, her family and her friends and associates for making this all happen. Everyone in the band felt very welcome and appreciated in Helsinki.
We sold out of the CDs we brought with us, but you can order the CD right here on this website directly below. A little below that is the link to the feature-length documentary film about The Other Europeans, "The Broken Sound." It can also be ordered directly from this website. Thanks to all friends and fans of the band! We hope to see you again soon!

Warmest regards,
Alan Bern, director, The Other Europeans
