“amongst the finest klezmer ensembles on the planet” The Australian

Hailed as “one of London’s musical treasures, playing the best Balkan and klezmer music in Britain” (The Evening Standard), She’Koyokh have spent over a decade sponging up the rich folk music of Jewish Eastern Europe, Turkey and the Balkans.

Their evolution 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 performed at festivals such as Glastonbury, WOMAD and Cheltenham, and was nominated as Best Group in the Songlines World Music Awards 2012.
