This album marks the debut danish klezmer band Mames Babegenush.
The critically acclaimed debut features a fresh and highly potent style of klezmer. Critics introduced the album as a new take on the genre, which while respecting the roots and the traditional styles of the genre introduces a modern and highly original twist with a strong rock-inspired energetic sound.
"I can tell you that this is an album that is destined to make its mark on the Klezmer landscape. The Denmark-based sextet has a sound that combines the best parts of old and new Klezmer to create a sound all their own. Mames Babgenush have hit upon a winning combination of artistry and originality while simultaneously being faithful to the tradition and pushing the genre forward."
- Keith Wolzinger, Klezmer Podcast
The album was nominated for a Danish Music Award as Album of The Year.
