Klezmer Local 42 began in Athens, Georgia, 2009. For a long time before its inception, double bassist and long-time EarthFare employee Dan Horowitz and guitarist/evolutionary biologist Daniel Promislow would discuss their love of klezmer every time they met, which, in a town the size of Athens, was often. Meanwhile Daniel and multi-instrumentalist/singer Noel Beverly often talked about world music while they were members of the Athens Celtic band Short Road Home and wondered about getting together with this Horowitz guy to play klezmer.

After all, mused Dan and Daniel, what other music could so embody their culture and that of their ancestors? What other music could pack so much emotion—so much joy and sadness (often simultaneously)—into each and every note? The Blues? Yes, but klezmer is a very close second – and very danceable.

Bichos Vivos is a band that plays a style of music called Forró. Forró is originated and typical of Northeastern Region of Brazil.
