In this album MELECH MECHAYA reinterprets 5 traditional klezmer songs, including the Doina from the legendary klezmer clarinetist Dave Tarras. The creative arrangements of the band establish connections between the traditional klezmer rhythms and the modern influences of the 21st century, with the inevitable flavor of Fado and the Portuguese feeling.
That mixture is even more surprising in the old portuguese song "Chapéu Preto", where the folk "chula" rhythm is united with the klezmer vibes of the portuguese melody.
The 7 original compositions of the album, which represent the majority of the tracks, reveal a highly inventive sound that pushes the modern klezmer further to new boundaries. These songs, matured both in live concerts and in studio sessions, contain vibrant melodies and mesmerizing grooves, breathing the air from Fado and Tango, old folk and new jazz, trip-hop and drum'n'bass, John Zorn's Masada's work and Goran Bregovic's vibe. All this with an acoustic formation: clarinet, violin, guitar, double bass and percussion.
The album features two special guests: in the song Gare No Oriente the unique voice of Mísia, she who has been taking Fado outside the box, and in the song Caleidoscópio the trumpet of Frank London, the founder and leader of the Grammy award-winning Klezmatics, the number 1 international reference in modern klezmer.

MELECH MECHAYA is a festive trip, an infectious sound and groove that brings together a touch of Portuguese drama and the most joyful and extrovert Jewish tradition. They are also inspired by Gypsy, Arabian and Balkan music, along with Fado and Tango. The band was born in 2006 in Lisbon, and has been touring non-stop since 2007. They have performed almost 200 concerts in Portugal, Spain and Croatia, and their shows have been classified by João Bonifácio, from Público newspaper, as “Simply electrifying”. In 2008 they released the EP Melech Mechaya and, in 2009, they released their debut album Budja Ba. In October 2011 they released the album Aqui Em Baixo Tudo É Simples, which features the Portuguese Fado singer Mísia and the american trumpet player Frank London, from the Klezmatics (Grammy award winners in 2006). The present international release of the album, called simply “Melech Mechaya”, also includes Dança Do Desprazer, a song from the album Budja Ba and one of the biggest hits of the band, as a gift to the international audience.
