Don Kipper are a multi award-winning 7-piece ensemble playing a wide range of traditional musical forms, reflecting the cultural diversity of North East London. From Turkish and Greek Folk Musics to Romani music and Klezmer. While the band attempt to root themselves deeply in the traditions that surround them, they also like to bring these musical cultures together in innovative, exciting, and unusual ways that mirror London’s vibrant, cosmopolitan energy. Equally happy taking an intimate audience on a musical journey through Europe as they are taking their feet on a frantic journey around the dancefloor, at home both on large outdoor stages playing to a crowd of ecstatic dancers, and in sweaty tents getting the throng jumping.
Since 2013, they have released two albums, been featured on BBC Introducing and the BBC World Service, played two 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. Their new album 'Seven Sisters' is a release that’ll grab you by your very soul and pull you halfway through London before it’s finished with you. It will be released on 22nd June through World Music Network's Riverboat Records.
