Born in 2002 this band almost defies description, wild and amusing by turns on stage playing their own unique music , is it from Denmark from whence they come , maybe but to fully appreciate Afengin you have to hear the music. Its probably best with these guys to check the two reviews we're printing here, then talk to us about how we can bring them to your show ... amazing!!!
Afenginn are Rasmus Krøyer - clarinets .... Niels Skovmand - violin ..... Kim Nyberg - mandolin, mandocello ..... Aske Jacoby - bass .... Rune Kofoed drums & percussion
"They've developed into a world class eccentric group, even though there's little of Denmark in their sound. Take them for what they are, which is wonderful, and enjoy. Pure madness."Sing Out! (USA)
It's melodic, witty, and complex, a distillation of all Afenginn do. And they do a lot. On the CD they hint at Turkish, klezmer, Balkan, and even Mongolian music. At times they sound like a circus band that's escaped the asylum, but that's part of their joy.
They're shockingly good, with imaginations and technique that won't quit. If there's justice, they'll be huge.
