Mames Babegenush comes to Lotus from the vibrant cultural milieu of Copenhagen. Firmly rooted in klezmer, the six-member ensemble nonetheless crosses musical boundaries, blending this classic Jewish music with genres as diverse as tango, rock, cumbia, electronica, and Israeli folk music. Their dynamic, past-meets-present take on klezmer is designed to invigorate one of the world’s most recognizable dance genres.

Sponsored by Lou and Sybil Mervis Chair of Jewish Culture and the Arts, Robert A. and Sandra S. Borns Jewish Studies Program, and IU Institute for European Studies
