Klezmer music evolved from a tzimmes (mixture) of Jewish, Gypsy (Romany), Eastern European (Rumanian, Polish, Russian, Ukranian, Moldava, Ottoman, and etc.) musical sources. It was strongly influenced by the centuries old tradition of Jewish wedding songs and khazones, or cantorial liturgical melodies.
