She'Koyokh - Klezmer Group - Tuesday 25 February 2014
Tuesday 25 February 2014, 8pm at the Radlett Centre
A carefully crafted multi-lingual exploration from the Baltic to the Black Sea with songs in Yiddish, Russian, Bosnian, Greek, Ladino, Turkish and Kurdish with klezmer instrumentals and folk tunes from Bulgaria, Romania and Serbia.
She’Koyokh is a Yiddish expression meaning “nice one!”. The band formed in 2001, playing klezmer music – the instrumental Jewish wedding music of Eastern European communities. The group became fascinated by Gypsy music and folk music of the Balkans, travelling to Romania, Bulgaria, Turkey and Greece to study with master musicians. She'Koyokh were hailed by the world music magazine Songlines as Britain's best klezmer and Balkan music band, and were winners of the Netherlands' International Jewish music competition. The group have released two albums by ARC Music, the latest of which received a five-star review in Songlines.
She’Koyokh’s members hail from the UK, USA, Serbia, Greece and Turkey, forging a unique sound that is traditional yet original.
Please note: Reserved seating will apply at this concert. Advance booking, which opens to non-members on 2nd December, is strongly recommended
