Presented by Don Kipper
Performance date and time
Friday, 16th February 2018
Don Kipper are a multi award-winning 7-piece ensemble playing and transforming 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 attempting to root themselves deeply in the traditions that surround them, they also explore radical interpretations and taut arrangements full of complex harmonies, rhythms and imaginative improvisation. They’re equally adept at taking an intimate audience on a musical journey through Europe as they are taking their feet on a frantic journey around the dancefloor, at home both on large outdoor stages playing to a crowd of ecstatic dancers, and in sweaty tents getting the throng jumping. Since 2013, they have released our First and Second albums, been featured on BBC Introducing 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, Taraf De Haïdouks, or Balkan Beat Box you’ll love Don Kipper! They have extensive experience playing at UK and European festivals, and venues such as King’s Place, The Southbank Centre and Rich Mix in London, and are acclaimed for our high octane shows that will make your feet think and your brain dance!
