Oy Division confirmed for Sziget Festival 2009!

Israelian act Oy Division, a band playing the old-style folk music of East-European Jews (more widely known as Klezmer), have confirmed their presence at Sziget Festival 2009. Oy Division are a band that try to play the pre-war Jewish music the way it has been originally performed, not modernising it in any way. They also have a new album out.

According to their MySpace page, “their repertoire is a mix of instrumental wedding dance music, folk songs and songs originating in the Yiddish theatre, Old music played again with the zeal and exuberance of punks.” That sounds quite interesting, doesn’t it?


Oy Division will play Sziget Festival 2009 on August 16.
