Touring the world for 14 years, the Baghdaddies’ music is world music with strong Balkan tendencies alongside Caribbean grooves, Middle Eastern rhythms and even some Geordie [native Newcastle] touches, all awash with influences such as ska, jazz, punk and metal, delivered with theatre and exuberance. 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!

World music mash-up artists Baghdaddies pretty much invented the idea 14 years ago when they began infusing Balkan brass with spicy ska and shimmering Arabisms. They may have spawned a thousand imitations but there’s no doubting who’s the (Bagh)daddies, still.
