'Klezmer' is a Yiddish contraction of the Hebrew words 'kley' (instrument) and 'zemer' (song). Opposed to the respected 'musikant', 'klezmer' qualified an illiterate musician, unable to read notes and playing traditional music by ear. Nowadays, the term is rather laudatory for the musicians and qualifies also the traditional Jewish music of Eastern Europe, as well as all its modern derivatives.

Other languages: German.
