She’Koyokh have been hailed by The Guardian as “one of the finest and most entertaining British-based exponents of global music”. Having started out busking in London's Columbia Road flower market, the group has developed into one of the city’s major exponents of Balkan and klezmer styles from Russia, Ukraine, Greece, Turkey and, of course, throughout the Balkans. Touring their fourth album ‘First Dance on Second Avenue’, the group go on a formidably gymnastic journey across Eastern Europe and beyond. Starting out in 1950s New York, they finishing up in a Turkish sauna, via Romanian mountains and Serbian villages.

This event is co-hosted by the SOAS Concert Series and the Jewish Music Institute.
