One of the first bands in the UK to play Balkan ‘gypsy’ style music, mixing it with their own original material. The Baghdaddies’ exuberant brand of world music is an exhilarating cocktail of Balkan melodies, ska and latin grooves and sizzling brass played with furious energy and theatrical humour,

“If jerry Dammers and Terry Hall had grown up listening to world music, The specials might have sounded very like the Baghdaddies.”

— Nigel Williamson – Uncut Magazine

“The band have a particular flair for the Balkans and capture its frenetic energy and flamboyance wonderfully. There is also a fair share of klezmer, jazz, ska and punk – an anarchic fusion where Ivo Papasov meets The Clash meets The Beat ”

— Songlines Magazine
