One theory is that Klezmer and Balkan music both relate back to Turkish music. The Turks were present in the general area for 800 years or so.

great show,
i was wondering if the beautiful balkan tunes we are hearing today relate at all in structure or origin to yiddish klezmer music.

thanks so much for the great show!
