She'Koyokh: Nice One!
Friday, 10 March 2017
‘Among the finest klezmer ensembles on the planet’ (The Australian), She'Koyokh is a Yiddish word roughly translating as 'Nice one!'. Musicians hailing from the UK, Serbia, Sweden and Turkey perform virtuosic, toe-tapping klezmer, Gypsy music, soulful songs and the best Balkan dance tunes.
Their fourth studio album is being released in March 2017 and they take you on a journey sampling polyphonic singing from Bulgaria, a Serbian song about a pigeon on the raspberries, a steamy quarrel between mother-in-laws in a Turkish sauna, a duet between a father and daughter about who she's going to marry - in the end she chooses the drunken one! - and a love song for a Gypsy girl with penetrating green eyes.
The Evening Standard say She'Koyokh are ‘one of London’s musical treasures, playing the best Balkan and klezmer music in Britain’. Expect to go home feeling nourished, elated, and saying ‘Nice one!’
