AFENGINN (DENMARK)

Inquisitive, playful and imaginative, this acclaimed Danish 5-piece takes an anarchic approach to traditional musical structures. Winners of Danish Music Awards for “Best World Album of the Year” and “Contemporary Folk Artist”, Afenginn has built up a world wide reputation for their virtuosity and dynamic live shows fuelled by great joy and seeking to cross borders and push limits. Formed in Copenhagen in 2002, the ensemble festures mandolin, clarinets, drums, bass and violin, with compositions ranging from the lyrical and cinematic to charismatic and wild dance tunes, always maintainging a rhythmic and melodic finesse which is distinctively Afenginn. Winners of Danish Music Awards for “Best World Album of the Year” and “Contemporary Folk Artist”, Afenginn made their first appearance in Australia in early 2014, holding audiences of all ages in the palms of their hands, receiving standing ovations wherever they went.
