Mames Babegenush


Concert Details


It’s impossible to listen to their exciting energy without feeling the urge to dance, move some part of one’s body, or simply feel better about the world in general.

—All About Jazz

With Strings by Mames Babegenush has a colourful vibrancy all of its own. . . . Its lush and passionate tapestry of effervescent music will manifest itself into one of the most addictive albums you have heard for a long time.

—One World Music Radio

Mames Babegenush is the East meeting the North, merging strong Scandinavian roots with the vibrant dance music of Eastern Europe.

From the ambience of Nordic pine trees to lively weddings in Romania, the music of Mames Babegenush gives a sense of both melancholy and ecstatic joy. Formed in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 2004, the six-piece ensemble quickly dazzled audiences as well as critics with a fresh sound and musical gumption. The group spent years perfecting the styles of traditional Jewish and eastern European folk music and have always insisted on leaving their personal mark on their music.
