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.
The Baghdaddies headline this inspiring night of local and regional talent as part of febfest. With Balkan melodies, ska and latin grooves alongside sizzling brass, the band play euphoric dancing music with furious energy and theatrical humour.
Tickets: £8.00 in advance / £10.00 on the door
