About Us
Hailed as “one of London’s musical treasures, playing the best Balkan and klezmer music in Britain” (Evening Standard), we have spent over a decade absorbing the rich folk music traditions of Jewish Eastern Europe, Turkey and the Balkans.

Watch this mini-documentary about She’Koyokh with live footage from Sziget Festival 2015

Our evolution spans the 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, we have performed at festivals such as Glastonbury, Cheltenham, WOMAD and Sziget. We’ve just recorded our 4th studio album due for release in March 2017.
