(Delft, The Netherlands)
L'Chaim is inspired by the traditions of Eastern Europe, presented in a charismatic and energetic manner, on stage or in the streets. By combining klezmer music, Balkan jazz, polka, Iranian and Spanish music, they create a refreshing and dancing mixture.
Established in 2006 in Delft in the Netherlands, the group is composed of seven musicians from different backgrounds and different origins: some from the circus, others have jazz backgrounds or classical roots, some come from Spain or Italy!
