Four globally acclaimed albums have earned She’Koyokh the reputation as “one of London’s musical treasures playing the best klezmer and Balkan music in Britain” (The Evening Standard).
With seventeen years absorbing and performing the rich folk music traditions of Jewish Eastern Europe, Turkey and the Balkans, She’Koyokh’s shows bring together the stunning polyphonic melodies and intricate rhythms of Bulgaria, treasured tunes from Serbian villages and exhilarating Gypsy dances from Romania as well as soulful Sephardic songs and klezmer music from Jewish eastern Europe.
The band formed in 2001 with the support of a Millennium Award from the Jewish Music Institute. In 2008 they were awarded first prize in the International Jewish Music Festival in Amsterdam and have been shortlisted twice for Best Group in the Songlines World Music Awards.
