Home / Biography / Afenginn



Using a name that supposedly means intoxication or great strength in Old Norse, Afenginn would rather make reference to themselves as a far more mutated ethno band. They’re Danish, but don’t audio it. Produced in Copenhagen in 2002, they originally drew a whole lot from klezmer and Balkan music, but skewed through an extremely personal prism that drew from many resources, with a lot of the materials compiled by mandolinist Kym Nyberg. Their first proper album, Retrograd, received them a Danish Globe Music Honor as Best Globe Music Recording in 2005, and its own follow-up, Akrobakkus, strike the entire world music graphs two years later on. The band offers received support from Danish Arts, and Nyberg offers been given structure grants or loans. In 2007, bass participant Andrzej Krejniuk quit the music group, to be changed by Aske Jacoby, whose day time job is actually as Denmark’s leading program guitarist. In 2008 the group released the exciting Reptilica Polaris, a grander departure from its earlier work and having a choir and complete brass section, celebrating the disk with many Danish concerts offering all the individuals.
