I've heard Sephardic music (mainly old traditional, like this one) but I'm not acquainted with Klezmer. Klezmer stands out for its instrumentation, whereas Sephardic is primarily vocal. That's why Portuguese and Spanish speakers (like Unchained Ballad and me, for instance) can feel a strong "cultural conexion" just by listening to the voice, regardless of religion. But in Argentina there is an important Ashkenazi Jewish community (notice that there was a strong inmigration from Eastern Europe to Argentina in the 19th and early 20th centuries), so Klezmer music is played there too.

Segundo Mundo (which means "Second World") is a band from Buenos Aires:

Great clips from Vegangelica and Zaqarbal.
No-one is mentioning The Klezmatics - is that because they`re such an obvious, mainstream choice ? They have a great violinist in Alicia Svigals and a lot of singing, which is quite refreshing for anyone suffering from clarinet overdose!

I really like Klezmer music. The Klezmatics are very good, also a UK band called Oi Va Voi.
There's another guy Frank London, i think, who did some great Klezmer Brass stuff.
I also like the old Yiddish folk songs from eastern europe. I'll look around & post some examples

Moshe, do you mean this song?

I thought people could embed videos in posts right away (regardless of post count) by copying the portion of the URL after the equal sign, as shown below, minus the periods after "youtube." Does that not work?

Here's a peppy Klezmer song:

The Netherlands actually have a klezmer band

Seen them live at the Lowlands festival.
Apart from the fact that in some songs they tried to add (bad) dutch Rap to the Klezmer, The band itself isn't half bad
Got to love the solo @ 1:40

Hi Angelica
I sought to quote your post but it would not allow me to do that because it contains links!!!
That is the song I was thinking of. I love a version by Moishe Oysher. I couldn't find that on youtube.
Joan Baez did a very good English language version

So here's Klezmer Week come round again after seven or so years! I've gotta run right now, but when I come back I hope I'll 've thought of some recs for this lively genre of music.
