Don Kipper re a multi award-winning 7-piece ensemble playing and transforming a wide range of traditional musical forms reflecting the cultural diversity of North East London, frourkish and reek Folk Musics to omani music and lezme. eparated from the shoal, two breakaway Kippers, The Tsvey Kipperim, Daniel Gouly and Josh Middleton, delve deeply in the shama (spirit) of Jewish music. With wit, joy, and sadness in equal measure, they take an audience on an odyssey through the bridens, rkishers, eylekhs, a hoks at the very core of the Klezmer repertoire.
Through the intimate interplay between accordion and the clarinet, these two musicians explore the potentials that a deep working relationship, a shared love for the tradition, and a profound friendship can create.
We're delighted to return to the Southbank centre for one of their wonderful Friday Tonic session, it's a lovely free one chock full of vibes - with people from 1 to 90 all getting their dancing shoes on...
Thanks to Culture& for hosting us, we can't wait!
Uncover the world of Eastern European Jewish and Roma music making as part of the University of Essex's Holocaust Memorial Day, from hectic hongas and frantic freylekhs, to tranquil Dobridens and soulful Doinas. Over the course of the evening Don Kipper will tell you stories of great Klezmer musicians (the Klezmorim) of the past and bring the tradition to life.
Don Kipper attempt to root themselves deeply in the traditions that surround them. They seek to explore radical interpretations and taut arrangements full of complex harmonies, rhythms and imaginative improvisation.
We're delighted to return to the Jamboree in November alongside the sensationally talented Oxford Maqam .
Hailing from various backgrounds, what brings Oxford Maqam together is a deep appreciation for music of the Arab world and Turkey of the 19th to mid 20th centuries.
They perform with an ear for the more cosmopolitan and improvisatory practices at the turn of the 20th century -
a period of musical renaissance from Istanbul to Cairo.
Get ready for an evening of powerfully evocative music making as we trace connections across North Africa, Asia Minor, the Mediterranean and Eastern Europe

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. Attempting to root themselves deeply in the traditions that surround us, we also like to bring these musical cultures together in innovative, exciting, and unusual ways that mirror London’s vibrant, cosmopolitan energy. They are as 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 our 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. If you like the Amsterdam Klezmer Band, Taraf De Haïdouks, or Balkan Beat Box you’ll love Don Kipper!
Born of a transatlantic partnership, James grew up in South East London listening to the folk and soul sound of 70s America and wrote his first melody at the age of four. His first guitar, acquired at the age of nine, became the tool for surviving the tumult of a nowhere place, and helped James find somewhere he felt he belonged. In his early twenties, he took off, alone once again, hitchhiking and busking through Europe from Amsterdam to Istanbul, writing songs along the way. Back in the UK, these songs became a band, but eventually James had to shed another skin, and disembarked in Nashville, Tennessee. Here he found his producer and they set about making the album which had travelled with him to his maternal homeland, where it could finally get free.
