Band, AT
Jazz, Folk and World

Nifty's is a klezmer-jazz band formed 1999 in Austria. Their music can be described as a mixture of klezmer and eastern european folklore, spiced up with elements of modern music such as dub and ska. Their so-called "Unza-Musik" combines rough and lyrical moments with uptempo-insanity as well as a big focus on Improvisation. Nifty’s sound is perhaps the best answer to Naftule „Nifty“ Brandwein's question (which he transformed into a songtitle) : „Wie bist Du gewesen vor Prohibition?“ (What where you like before Prohibition?) The bandname Nifty's can be traced back to Naftule "Nifty" Brandweind or Naftuli Brandwine, (1884–1963) a Jewish clarinetist and influential in klezmer music. Brandwein was known as much for his colorful personality as for his musical talent.
