The British capital is a hotbed of musical fusions, as epitomised by Don Kipper. The multi award-winning ensemble play a wide range of musical forms reflecting the cultural diversity of their North East London home, from Romani, Turkish and Greek Folk, to Klezmer, electronica and jazz beats.
While born of traditions that surround them and they have inherited through childhood memories, the septet bring these musical cultures together in an innovative, exciting, and unusual mix that echo London’s vibrant, cosmopolitan energy.
Since 2013, Don Kipper have performed as the BBC Introducing act at WOMAD, released three albums, been featured on BBC Radio 3 and the BBC World Service, played European tours, and won the titles of both the Moshe Beregovski Award for best Klezmer Newcomers and World Music Network’s Battle of the Bands.
On Friday, these fine global musicians take to the stage at The Jazz Café as part of a double bill with The Langan Band.
Described as “impressively original” (The Guardian) and the “true sound of our capital” (WOMAD 2017), go see Don Kipper live for a night of “unbridled musical passion and virtuosic mastery” (DJ Ritu).
