company description

AFENGINN (DENMARK)

- a kaleidoscopic musical journey from deep-felt Nordic melancholy to fastpaced dance outbreaks in every thinkable time signature ...

This acclaimed Danish ensemble has, since they occurred in 2002, built up a worldwide reputation as an excellent live act for their suggestive and dynamic live shows, and have actively toured throughout Europe, Australia and North America for an evergrowing international audience.

Ranging from lyrical, cinematic compositions to charismatic and wild dance tunes, there is always a rhythmic and melodic finesse which is distinctively Afenginn.

What started out as a young high octane fivepiece has matured into a sophisticated tour de force featuring clarinets, violin, mandolin, two drummers, cello/bass, marimba/piano and trombone.

"....The band delivers a concert where the audience is taken on a journey into a unique musical universe - which is distinctively Afenginn..."

Understanding the strong attractive forces within contradictions, their compositions seamlessly morph between moments of deep joy, strident courage, and undressed sadness. The interwoven melodies elicit tears from their audiences.

Influenced by folk, world and classical music, Afenginn has created their own individual style: acoustic, innovative, dynamic and doleful, which has brought them a wealth of awards and grants in their home country as well as acclaim and success abroad.

They’ve held audiences of all ages in the palms of their hands, receiving countless standing ovations throughout the world.

Experiencing is believing.

“Gradually, the band has become a towering force in
modern Nordic music” fROOTS (UK)


Afenginn has released six albums, received numerous awards, been part of the Danish Arts Foundation's 'The Young Elite' and has appeared at festivals like Roskilde Festival, SXSW, Tonder Festival, SPOT, St.Gallen Open Air, Stimmen, Penang World Music Festival in Malaysia and many more.
