Don Kipper (SOAS Concert Series) - 06/03/2017 Fri, 2017-11-24 16:33
Don Kipper are a multi award-winning innovative ensemble playing and transforming a wide range of traditional musical forms reflecting the cultural diversity of North East London, from Turkish Fasil and Greek Rebetiko to Romani music and Klezmer. While they attempt to root themselves deeply in these traditions they always seek to explore radical interpretations and taut arrangements full of complex harmonies, poly-rhythms and imaginative improvisation. Since 2013, they have released several albums, been featured on the BBC, played two European Tours, and won both the Moshe Beregovski Award for best Klezmer Newcomers and World Music Network’s ‘Battle of the Bands’ competition.
