From the Wiener Festwocheneröffnung 2016 | Grossmütterchen Hatz & Klok

Grossmütterchen Hatz & Klok – GROßMÜTTERCHEN (means “Grandma”) HATZ SALON ORKESTAR is a humorous “Worldjazzfolkskapopp-Quintett”. Their influences are drawn from Klezmer, Balkanfolk, Latin America and from classical music.  This Viennese band started in 2010. Since the very beginning, they’ve been a breath of fresh air on the Austrian music scene. They played with Randy Brecker, Dean Bowman, DJ Shantel and bands such as Bucovina Club Orkestrar and Sandy Lopicic Orkestrar. Each concert is like an eruption of unbelievable energy, unique mastery and humor. They can make anyone dance even the most reluctant people, so… let’s dance! (Quote from the Jewish Culture Festival Warsaw 2013).
