About Alba Challah

A unique and exciting Klezmer and World Music band. Perfect if you're looking for something just a little bit different, for any event!
Alba Challah's profile picture
Klezmer band

Alba Challah is made up of six highly trained classical musicians. We formed this group with a common goal of exploring the vast array of music that exists outside of our familiar bubble of Western classical repertoire, and to challenge and push the boundaries of performance. We play everything from traditional Klezmer, Baroque and film music, all the way to Spanish Holy Week processional marches, classical fusions and even original compositions. You name it, and we will play it!

...such a talented group of young musicians to come and entertain us here in Boat, what a delightful evening! They brought a smile to all our faces and without a doubt, for us, one of the very best evenings of entertainment we have had in a long time..... clearly a group of very talented musicians....
