Klezmer conquers Petah Tikva

Hanan Bar-Sela ran the hugely successful Klezmer Festival in Safed for many years. In recent years, he brought his midas touch to Jerusalem by starting the Jerusalem International Klezmer Festival, which has also been widely successful. This year, Bar-Sela decided to offer Klezmer fans a new treat by putting together a one-night concert event (tonight at 5 p.m.) in Petah Tikva.

Bar-Sela sat down with The Jerusalem Post to talk about the first time he heard the clarinet, the secret meaning of Klezmer music, and transitioning his festival from Safed to Jerusalem.
