Mames Babegenush have existed for 5 years and are ready with their debutalbum, Klezmer Killed the Radiostar. The music is both manic and oozes melancholy, travelling from out of control sirbas to the saddest of waltzes. ‘Mames Babegenush’ is Yiddish meaning ‘Moms Eggplant Salad’.

Mames Babegenush have existed for 5 years and are ready with their debutalbum, Klezmer Killed the Radiostar. The music is both manic and oozes melancholy, travelling from out of control sirbas to the saddest of waltzes. ‘Mames Babegenush’ is Yiddish meaning ‘Moms Eggplant Salad’. The band started out playing primarily at jewish parties such as weddings, bar mitzvahs and Hanukkah. Early on Mames Babegenush invented the concept of “klezmerattacks”; spontaneous surprise-concerts for unsuspecting people, ie.

outdoors at a public places, inside cafés, bars or parties. Unexpected klezmer music has a very different and profoundly strong impact on its surroundings, and these klezmerattacks are today highly regarded wherever they take place. Over the years the band has been playing at various venues and music festivals all over Denmark, Sweden and USA. They have focused on playing the klezmer music according to the traditional sound and musicians, such as Naftule Brandwein and Dave Tarras. But, over the years they have developed their own style and sound adding hard swinging grooves, elements of indie rock and Serbian horn arrangements.

In the start of ’08 the band was selected and invited to join a one-week klezmerworkshop at Carnegie Hall in New York City. The jury consisted of the world’s top klezmermusicians, ie.David Krakauer and ‘Socalled’ (Josh Dolgin), and the week ended up with Mames Babegenush performing at Carnegie Hall. Later that year the band returned to New York for a three-week tour where they played a total of 17 concerts, among others at the New York Gypsy Festival. Mames Babegenush recently released their debutalbum, Klezmer Killed The Radiostar, which has a fresh and rock like approach to the genre. The band has played a wide range of concerts at venues, like The Danish Royal Theatre, Carnegie Hall in New York & VEGA and festivals like The New York Gypsy Festival, Roskilde Festival and Copenhagen Jazz Festival.

Mames Babegenush played this years SPOT festival (DK’s biggest showcase event), and their music is currently being used in a sitcom broadcasted by Danish National Television (“Normalerweize”). In the fall of ’09 Mames Babegenush are going on a transatlantic tour to USA and Argentina. Read more on Last.fm.
