Marrying their strong Scandinavian roots and elements of jazz with the vibrant dance music and klezmer traditions of eastern Europe, Denmark’s Mames Babegenush bring their “COVID Can’t Keep Klezmer Down” Tour to Washington D.C’s Bossa Bistro lounge on July 27th. 

The COVID-19 pandemic led to the cancellation of two US tours in 2020-21, but venue reopenings in 2022 and excited arts presenters and audiophiles made coming back this summer an inevitability. The “COVID Can’t Keep Klezmer Down” Tour tour sees the band bringing with them songs from their sixth studio album which was written and recorded during the pandemic and is due out later this year.

From the contemplative ambiance of Nordic snowscapes to the lively weddings of Romania, the music of Mames Babegenush exudes a sense of both poignant melancholy and irresistibly danceable exuberance.

Check out Mames Babegenush’s latest single, “Elvermose Cocek” below, and find this and more great music on the Alchemical Records Multigenre Mixture playlist on Spotify.
