Over the last few years, Leeds' based klezmer and Balkan beats bohemians Tantz, have taken the UK world/roots music scene apart with their full-on musical attack on audiences across the length and breadth of this nation. With awesome musical chops, an energy not seen since punk rock's halcyon days and ability to turn a gentle world music festival crowd into a heaving, pogoing mosh-pit, there's something special about this band that manages to touch almost everyone who hears and sees them live, no matter what music they're into.
They describe their sound "frenzied hyper klezmer", which gives you an idea but doesn't even come close. BBC Radio Leeds Introducing presenter Alan Raw did a better job saying "prepare to dance till it nearly does you in".
This event is part of Gateway to the World, our third free family weekender. This year is a lively exploration of the impact of trade and immigration on Wilton's during its 150 year history and on the people whose lives have been connected to the building, whether they worked, lived, visited or performed here.
