Award-winning Danish klezmer ensemble Mames Babegenush’s sound is the East meeting the North. Klezmer, traditional eastern European Jewish music, is in turn buoyant, poignant, and able to convey feelings of joy and sorrow with equal conviction. Mames Babegenush harness this rich palette of emotion and merge it with their Scandinavian roots, artistry, and imagination, to present a vibrant interpretation of the genre. It’s no wonder they have been welcomed on venerable stages around the world, from Carnegie Hall to Teatro Independencia in Argentina, and Roskilde Festival in Denmark. The band recently released its fifth album, Mames Babegenush with Strings.
