THE Baghdaddies exuberant and rampant brand of world music is an exhilarating cocktail of Balkan melodies, ska and latin grooves
and sizzling brass played with furious energy and theatrical humour, making them as unforgettable on stage as they are when performing as
wandering brass troubadours. Uplifting and infectiously danceable, full of blistering brass, rousing 5 part vocal harmonies and a rhythm section
that you can’t keep still to.
Songs to listen to and party! They take themselves incredibly seriously so you don’t have to…Performing at festivals and venues all over the world,
they are also known for their flamboyant street shows adapting their instrumentation to roam and process in a Roma Brass band style - marching
drum, sousaphone, trombone, sax and trumpet.
“The band have a particular flair for the Balkans and capture its frenetic energy and flamboyance wonderfully. There is also a fair share of
klezmer, jazz, ska and punk – an anarchic fusion where Ivo Papasov meets The Clash meets The Beat"
The Baghdaddies took the headliner slot. The five-piece, off-beat Balkan gyspys-ska-punkers are into their third decade of touring and are
well - versed at starting parties, as they so efficiently proved .
Balter Festival Review, Pitch Magazine:
If Jerry Dammers and Terry Hall had grown up listening to world music - The Specials might have sounded just like The Baghdaddies"
