She'koyokh Album Launch

@ Kings Place

90 York Way

London N1 9AG

 

She'koyokh proudly presents their 4th album 

‘First Dance on Second Avenue’ 

 

Musicians hailing from the UK, Serbia, Sweden and Turkey perform virtuosic, toe-tapping klezmer, Gypsy music, soulful songs and the best Balkan dance tunes. Releasing their fourth studio album, First Dance on Second Avenue, they take you on a journey sampling polyphonic singing from Bulgaria, a Serbian song about a pigeon on the raspberries, a steamy quarrel between mother-in-laws in a Turkish sauna, a duet between a father and daughter about who she’s going to marry – in the end she chooses the drunken one! – and a love song for a Gypsy girl with penetrating green eyes.

Expect to go home feeling nourished, elated, and saying ‘Nice one!’.
