She’Koyokh are one of London’s musical treasures, playing the best Balkan and klezmer music in Britain.

The eight members come from the UK, Turkey, Greece, Serbia and the US and several have studied with great musicians in the Balkans. With a strong female frontline of Cigdem Aslan (vocals), Meg Hamilton (violin) and Susi Evans (clarinet), they have completely assimilated the various styles and Wild Goats, their third CD, is their most accomplished.

At its heart is a gorgeous song of lost love, Selanik Turkusu, and around it the music is fiery and emotional, lyric and virtuoso with shrieking clarinet and sighing violin.
