 “Britain’s best klezmer and Balkan music Band” (Songlines)

 

She’Koyokh deliver an expertly crafted, multi-lingual exploration of music from the Baltic to the Black Sea. Each song has a story to tell, whether it’s about the wild goats on the rocky mountains of Southern Turkey or a squabble between Jewish mothers-in-law over a dowry. There’s a Soviet-Jewish song about lemons and a plea for Death to stay away when a disease strikes a village in Northern Greece. Also, love songs about beautiful Bosnian men and unmarried Kurdish brunettes, as well as klezmer instrumentals and folk dances from Bulgaria, Romania and Serbia.

 

With Turkish vocalist Cigdem Aslan and instrumentalists who’ve learned from the masters in Eastern Europe, She’Koyokh’s members (hailing from the UK, USA, Serbia, Greece and Turkey) forge a unique sound that is traditional yet original and lends to their unprecedented ability to perform music from practically every Eastern European country you can think of.

 

Winners of the Netherlands’ International Jewish Music competition and nominated in the Best Group category of the Songlines Music Awards 2012, She’Koyokh has performed in venues from Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw to the Gasteig in Munich and London’s Purcell Room and at festivals including Glastonbury, Spitalfields, City of London, Lichfield, Cheltenham, Petworth and WOMAD.
