"Both on- and offstage, Tsibele members maintained a banter and friendliness with the audience... Even more notably, they guided the audience throughout their set, explaining the origins and personal significance of the songs they played. This... is a testament to the band’s ethos: they make traditional klezmer and Moldovan/Bessarabian music accessible and exciting, simultaneously paying homage to musical traditions and connecting it to contemporary listeners."

- Noam Green, In Geveb - A Journal of Yiddish Studies

...mostly standard klezmer, but with the occasional rock twist... peeling away contemporary issues of “life under capitalism, tyranny, and heteropatriarchy” reveals that these problems aren’t new.

"Indroysn iz finster (It’s Dark Outside) is a moving and moody collection of traditional and new songs, with some delightfully inventive twists on skarabove (extremely familiar) tunes."
