Balkan melodies - ska and latin grooves - sizzling brass
‘The best party music around’ Froots
‘An anarchic fusion where Ivo Papasov meets The Clash meets The Beat’ - Songlines
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. They take themselves incredibly seriously so you don’t have to.
“If Jerry Dammers and Terry Hall had grown up listening to world music, The specials might have sounded very like the Baghdaddies.” — Uncut Magazine
