Pulkes is a Balkan-Klezmer band that was formed in 2018 within the walls of the city of Jerusalem. The band has already performed in a varity of festivals around the country and around the world such as:

  • InDnegev festival 2019
  • David Tower, Jerusalem
  • Dubai Expo 2020
  • “Haezor” club- with Quarter to Africa
  • Festival tour in Canada
  • and many more!

The band’s musical show takes listeners on an intoxicating Balkan journey, covering a diversity of genres from Afrobeats to Eastern European melodies. Ones that have been to a Pulkes show can say that a full-on dance party is guaranteed.

The band is made out of seven musicians, a virtuosic brass section and a powerful rhythm section, shaking every stage. All this is also due to the fact that the band grew under the management of the musical maestro Eyal Talmudi, a brass instrument player and a top music producer in Israel (Balkan Beatbox, Berry Sakharof, Shai Tsabari, Malox and more).
