Kol Nafshi Album Launch: Coming Soon in 2018

Forming in 2015 Kol Nafshi play original arrangements of songs with the authentic melodies and rhythms of Klezmer music.


Back (Left to Right): James Maley, Scott Collinsion, Howard Schwartz, Tao Issaro.
Front (Left to Right): Suzanne Kosowitz, Pippa Lester.

Kol Nafshi (translation: My Soul's Voice) is a modern Klezmer ensemble with a difference. Whilst Klezmer may initially evoke scenes of folk music in Eastern Europe, its tradition is that of the traveling musician: picking up and blending many other styles of music together.

Since its inception in 2015, Kol Nafshi's aim is to showcase cultural diversity through a united voice - the soul's voice -  as well as technical versatility in a wide range of musical genres. We want to reflect our multicultural and multigenerational audience in our arrangements of pop songs, classical pieces, jazz standards and original works. Kol Nafshi hopes to inspire positivity in diversity, one toe-tapping tune at a time.  

Eclectic and versatile, Kol Nafshi is also available to perform at private functions and community events. 

We are passionate about providing the soundtrack to your special day!
