Nominated for best band in the Songlines World Music Awards 2012 and winners of the Netherlands’ International Jewish music competition, She’Koyokh has been described as ‘sophisticated, multi-lingual and where klezmer music in Britain should be headed for right now’ (fROOTS). She’Koyokh is a Yiddish expression meaning ‘nice one!’ The band formed in 2001, playing klezmer music – the instrumental Jewish wedding music of Eastern European communities. They became fascinated by gypsy and folk music of the Balkans, travelling to Romania, Bulgaria, Turkey and Greece to study with master musicians. She’Koyokh’s members hail from the UK, USA, Serbia, Greece and Turkey, forging a unique sound that is traditional yet original. Their live shows are a carefully crafted, multi-lingual, exploration from the Baltic to the Black Sea with songs in Yiddish, Russian, Bosnian, Greek, Ladino, Turkish and Kurdish with klezmer instrumentals and folk tunes from Bulgaria, Romania and Serbia. She’Koyokh are Britain’s best klezmer and Balkan music band Songlines
