She’Koyokh – “amongst the finest klezmer ensembles on the planet”
She’Koyokh (UK, TUR, SRB) are a seven-piece, London-based, virtuosic, versatile and prize-winning band playing klezmer and traditional music from the Balkans and beyond.
Their name is a Yiddish word meaning “nice one!” and they’ve been hailed as “one of the finest and most entertaining British-based exponents of global music” (The Guardian). She’Koyokh have spent over twenty years absorbing the rich folk music traditions of Jewish Eastern Europe, Turkey and the Balkans. A live force to be reckoned with, they’re a wild swirl of clarinet, violin, jazzy guitar licks, accordion and dance-inducing percussion, plus the sweet and passionate voice of Çigdem Aslan. “What makes She’Koyokh stand out? It’s that most simple and obvious of things: they’re just all very, very, good musicians.” (fROOTS).
A nice note from klezmer clarinet legend, David Krakauer:
“Big fun Friday night sitting in for one tune at the Jamboree in London with the absolutely amazing UK based band She’Koyokh. They have produced an astonishingly organic and seamless synthesis of klezmer and Balkan styles that is a joy to listen to!! Many thanks for a beautiful evening!!”
