Mames Babegenush, a sextet from Copehnhagen, give the zesty, brassy, festive and sad hybrid music of Eastern Europe a crisp Scandinavian touch. They blend the sounds of trumpet, accordion and clarinet; part ecstatic wedding celebration, part marching band, part chamber jazz and just a touch of zany cartoon chaos. Klezmer combines Jewish traditional and folk styles with regional flavors, providing the music with a bit of Nordic atmosphere. In true klezmer style, Mames Babegenush makes jubilant music that always contains the suggestion of a possible lament, to season the exuberance with an eyedropper of introspection.
This is an outdoor show in the Bombyx Backyard. Please bring your own lawn chairs and blankets. If there is bad weather we will move the show inside to the Bombyx Sanctuary (main room).
