Pulkes band

An Israeli-Jerusalem ensemble that combines sounds from all over the Mediterranean and the Balkans, along with African rhythms and a Western groove that moves the body, 'Pulkes' gives a show that leaves no room for indifference.

Pulkes band has been active since 2017 and has not rested for a moment, currently working on an EP that will be released soon.

Who we are?

We play world music with an emphasis on music and styles from the Balkans, klezmer, Mediterranean and more.
