Yale Strom and Hot Pstromi, a fusion of traditional Klezmer, new Jewish music, Gypsy, Khasidic, world beat and Balkan music, will perform for Music @ The Library at 2:00 on Saturday, May 18, 2013. The free concert will take place upstairs at the Hemet Public Library, followed by a workshop for string students interested in learning these exciting styles of music.Hot Pstromi bandleader and founder Yale Strom was a pioneer among revivalists in conducting extensive field research since 1981 in Central and Eastern Europe and the Balkans among the Jewish and Rom communities. Initially, his work focused primarily on the use and performance of Klezmer music among these two groups. Gradually, his focus increased to examining all aspects of their culture, from post-World War II to the present. With more than 2 decades and 75 such research expeditions, Strom has become one of the world's leading scholar-ethnographer-artists of Klezmer music and history
