London-based She’Koyokh has spent the last decade soaking up the rich folk music of Eastern Europe, Turkey and the Balkans. Four globally acclaimed albums have earned the band a reputation as “one of London’s musical treasures playing the best klezmer and Balkan music in Britain” (The Evening Standard).
Their evolution that spans the humble origins of busking at East London’s Columbia Road flower market to performing in the famous concert halls of Europe, including Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw, the Gasteig in Munich and London’s Southbank Centre. As well as TV appearances and live sessions on BBC Radio 3’s In Tune and World on 3, She’Koyokh has also performed at festivals such as Glastonbury, Cheltenham and WOMAD.
With a sumptuous mix of violin, accordion, clarinet, double bass, guitar and percussion, and vocals from acclaimed Turkish singer Cigdem Aslan, expect a night of exhilarating music. Early booking is advised as Artsreach welcomes this outstanding band to Dorset!
