Mames Babegenush - Dennis Lehmann

Jewish music from Denmark? Coming to D.C.? See it to believe it on July 27 at Bossa Bistro & Lounge when Mames Babagenush, returns to the U.S. for the first time since 2019. Denmark has an extremely small Jewish population of under 10,000—in a country just shy of 6 million in total.

Join contributing writer Eric Althoff, as he discusses the band’s upcoming show, the history of their musical tradition, and more.
