Afenginn

Inquisitive, playful and imaginative, this acclaimed Danish 5-piece takes an anarchic approach to traditional musical structures. Meaning "intoxication and strength", Afenginn delivers fast-paced, high-octane shows fuelled by great joy, always seeking to cross borders and push the limits of their virtuosity and live performances.

Formed in Copenhagen in 2002, Afenginn has built up a reputation of virtuosity and excellent live shows worldwide. Their compositions range from lyrical and picturesque compositions to jagged up-tempo numbers in odd time signatures, always with a special rhythmic and melodic finesse which characterises Afenginn. Their own term for the band’s musical style is "Bastard Ethno” and have won them three Danish Music Awards and several grants and nominations. LUX from 2013 is their fifth and most recent album and arguably their greatest achievement to date: “a focused and nostalgic masterpiece” (GAFFA, DK) “unique sound poetry” (LIRA, SE)
