A nine-piece klezmer-funk-rock-jazz ensemble, the 4th Ward Afro-Klezmer Orchestra performs original compositions and arrangements combining West African rhythms with Eastern European klezmer melodies.
About six years ago, trumpeter and composer Roger Ruzow formed the unusual group and named it for the Atlanta neighborhood where he lives. Boasting a roster of extraordinary veteran talent, 4WAKO performs tunes that swing like Duke Ellington’s nights at the Apollo.
