About this event

One of the first bands in the UK to play Balkan ‘gypsy’ style music, mixing it with their own original material. The Baghdaddies’ exuberant brand of world music is an exhilarating cocktail of Balkan melodies, ska and latin grooves and sizzling brass played with furious energy and theatrical humour.

This event is part of our Friday Nights Live Autumn 2019 Season. It is presented in partnership with Continental Drifts.

 

If Jerry Dammers and Terry Hall had grown up listening to world music, The specials might have sounded very like the Baghdaddies
Nigel Williamson – Uncut Magazine
The band have a particular flair for the Balkans and capture its frenetic energy and flamboyance wonderfully. There is also a fair share of klezmer, jazz, ska and punk – an anarchic fusion where Ivo Papasov meets The Clash meets The Beat
