We are Bagdad Beat, an energetic and versatile musician collective. Hailing from the northern part of Denmark we melt down dusty Balkan, Arabic music and shape it with elements of psychedelic rock, surf, Punk & stunning tales. As the dust settles, the crowd is left in a state of delight, exhaustion and astonishment.
The world musical adventure Bagdad Beat has its strong roots in the outer areas of Denmark. A vision to burst musical frontiers gave rise to a number of successful years, filled with the joy of performing, concerts and musical display.
After a break, spent on discovering inspiration in the Middle East, the Balkans and India respectively, Bagdad Beat was together once again in the spring of 2011, now with renewed energy, new ideas and a whole new EP - a release that has already been well received at the biggest get-together of world-music, WOMEX.
With our EP "Ompa Ompa OPIUM", 100 festive concerts in our baggage and sky-high ambitions especially, we are now more than ready to take on the Danish as well as foreign stages.
