Never Mind the Balkans Here's Max Pashm


Max Pashm presents a hefty dose of "KlezmerBalkanGreekGypsyPunk with Electro beats, no doubt influenced by his own Jewish roots (he is half Sephardi and half Ashkenazi) and many years spent in Greece, extensive touring of Eastern Europe, the Balkans and beyond and now Brighton based. No longer just a one-man act like in the early days (Max released his debut album Weddings, Bar-mitzvahs & Funerals on Sony Music back in 1997), the Max Pashm Band is a collective of some of the finest UK-based Greek, Balkan and Klezmer musicians and includes Greek bouzouki and baglamas player George Kypreos, Klezmer clarinet player Merlin Shepherd & classical Russian/Yiddish singer and pianist Polina Shepherd. Combined with Maxs blistering electronic beats/percussion and vocals, the band performs a powerful and uplifting fusion of the old and new. As well as all the traditional influences, the album contains flavours of Dub, Ska, Hip-Hop, Rock and Punk, blending many genres and styles to create a unique sound and energy with lyrics in Greek, Bulgarian, Yiddish and English. Sun-blushed, bouzouki-fuelled Med mix-up. - fRoots Blistering Balkan beats and general nu-world trippiness from the highly danceable grooves of Max Pashm. - Time Out Tracks: Imnul / Fight On The Streets / Rembeteli / I Neno / Klezmernaki / Anarchy / The Calling / The Tongue / Once Upon A Time In Hellas / Manea-k / Angels / Maximus Taximus
