Don Kipper UK/Greece/Serbia
Taut arrangements full of complex harmonies, furious rhythms and plenty of imaginative improvisation.
Balkan beats and beautiful Romani songs, Klezmer and Greek rebetiko, West-African grooves and much else collide gloriously in the music of the seven-piece Don Kipper.
It’s nigh on impossible to pigeon-hole their eclectic roots and routes with any tidiness so the group simply describe their music as a reflection of the teeming cultural diversity of North East London, where they came together.
“We attempt to root ourselves deeply in the traditions that surround us while seeking to explore radical interpretations,” they say.
