Called "the Coltranes of this genre" by Allmusic.com, Yale Strom's Hot Pstromi is one of the freshest, funkiest klezmer acts in America. But they'll get even fresher at the 13th Annual Klezmer Summit: My Yidishe Mambo, where they'll join forces with trumpet virtuoso Gilbert Castellanos and his Latin jazz band. Shtetl culture meets Salsa in a thrillingly diverse evening of up-tempo grooves and hauntingly beautiful Jewish music that pays homage to the influence mambo, cha-cha and rhumba had on klezmer from post-war America through the 1960s.
