NEW CD!!! - EASTERN HORA on iTunes

Shtreiml nominated for 2014 Canadian Folk Music Award - "World Group Of The Year"
"This is innovative instrumental music which refuses to be pigeonholed by simple categorization, from a band that continues to impress."

Alex Brown. Review of "Eastern Hora." Rootsworld. January 28, 2014


"Shtreiml, en guise de fierté identitaire, mais aussi d'affirmation transculturelle. Et quelle musique ! Mordante autant que délicate, portée par le klezmer et les racines juives de l'Europe de l'Est autant que par la Turquie, avec ces pulsions rock, funk, jazz qui déménagent ou ces inflexions bluesy et ces airs de valse qui font respirer."

Yves Bernard. Le Devoir. March 29, 2014


"The music played by the Montreal-based collective can more succinctly be described as Turkish blues. The interplay between Ismail Fencioglu, an oud virtuoso from Istanbul, and harmonica player Jason Rosenblatt, wasn't far removed from the partnership of the legendary Chicago blues duo of Buddy Guy and Junior Wells"

Timothy Finn. The Kansas City Star. February 23, 2014
