“Sure to send shivers down your spine” – Songlines
“So tight it sounds like one divine entity is playing the band” – Max Reinhardt, Late Junction – BBC Radio 3
Seven outrageously skilful musicians create high octane, award-winning Klezmer fusion, with fingers flying devilishly fast over the numerous strings, buttons, keys and skins that make up the component parts of Don Kipper’s joyful little orchestra. Dunja Botic’s sumptuous vocals soar around and above the instruments’ intricate polyrhythms.
From Turkish Fasıl and Greek Rebetiko to Gypsy Jazz and Klezmer, they have collected sounds from around the world and woven them all together into a spectacular tapestry that is entirely their own. Their colourful, virtuosic interpretations of traditional tunes have won them widespread praise, and with two albums and two awards under their belt as well as sessions on bbc radio 3 there is no doubt they will continue to astonish the music world in the coming years.
