Never miss another 'Yiddish Twist Orchestra' show
Making Tracks Presents: Yiddish Twist Orchestra
For a short while in the late 50s and early 60s, London was home to ‘der shvitz’, the dirtiest most deliriously danceable music of all – a hallucinating mix of surf rock guitar, West Indian calypso, mambo, skiffle and Jewish folk melodies.
Yiddish Twist Orchestra hail from East London and include some of the most respected musicians in their field.
Under the guidance of trumpeter Lemez Lovas (Oi Va Voi, Shtetl Superstars) and twistneck guitarist Ben Mandelson (3 Mustaphas 3, Triaboliques) with support from Europe's retro king Natty Bo on vocals (Ska Cubano, Top Cats) and sizzling Latin trombone player Paul Taylor (Snowboy, Roberto Pla), their music pays homage to the genius and paranoia of Willy Bergman, the anonymous beatnik funkateer who got the slums - and salons - on both sides of the water dancing to that pounding Yiddish beat.
