The Nu Haven Kapelye image

The Nu Haven Kapelye is Southern New England’s largest Klezmer ensemble, numbering anywhere from 12-30 musicians. A cross between a big band and a Klezmer orchestra, the Nu Haven Kapelye is known for its innovative arrangements of Klezmer and Yiddish music from Romania, Hungary, Bessarabia, and other Eastern European locales. It isn't just the size of this group that makes it so exciting it's the energy of their performances and the commitment of the musicians that comes across in their music. The group is intergenerational with players ranging in age from 12-86. The group recorded and released their first CD, What’s Nu, in 2016 and just released their second album, Nu Haven Style this past December 25 (2023).

During the pandemic the group recorded and released several quarantine videos including “Mazel”, which has been accepted to 6 film festivals and recently won “Best Music Video” at the 2021 LA Sun Film Fest and just last week the video took first place for the Best Jewish Music Video at the Bubbe Awards, the Brazilian International Jewish Music Festival.
