Don Kipper in Concert

Event information

This joyful, multi-lingual, multi award-winning seven-piece ensemble are remarkable young exponents of Jewish klezmer and traditional styles from Greece, Turkey and the Balkans, reflecting the cultural diversity and living traditions of their North East London home. Weaving virtuosic instrumentation, Dunja Botic's sumptuous and 'spectacular' (BBC Radio 3) vocals, and unbridled musical passion, their uptempo good-time shows are exquisitely freewheeling. _________________________________________________________________ Dunja Botic: vocals Andrew Gorman: violin, vocals Daniel Gouly: clarinet, vocals Josh Middleton: accordion Tim Karp: guitar Jamie Benzies: double bass Timmy Doyle: drums, darabuka, riq, spoons Don Kipper are a multi award-winning seven-piece ensemble playing a wide range of traditional musical forms reflecting the cultural diversity of North East London, from Turkish and Greek folk musics to Romani music and klezmer. While rooting themselves deeply in the traditions that surround them, they also like to bring these musical cultures together in innovative, exciting, and unusual ways that mirror London's vibrant, cosmopolitan energy. They are equally happy taking an intimate audience on a musical journey through Europe as they are taking their feet on a frantic journey around the dancefloor. 'The true sound of our capital.' WOMAD Since 2013, they have performed as the BBC Introducing act at WOMAD, released two albums, been featured on BBC Radio 3 and the BBC World Service, played two European Tours, and won the titles of both the Moshe Beregovski Award for best Klezmer Newcomers and World Music Network's 'Battle of the Bands'. If you like the Amsterdam Klezmer Band or Taraf De Ha´douks, you'll love Don Kipper. Greece/Serbia/UK. International arts supported by Live & Local Friends.
