Wereldmuziek vanaf het continent van Turf, Jenever & Achterdocht. Papaformigas is a Balkan, Gipsy, Ska, Klezmer, Worldmash band from the north of the Netherlands.
They released their first self-titled EP in 2013, and in 2019 their second EP called “Secret things” will be available too.
From the nether realms of Emmen and beyond a deep rumble was slowly finding its way to the surface. A few musicians, all from different backgrounds and wind directions, decided to put their money where their mouths are. Because a deep, rumbling itch needs to be scratched urgently!
Making music like it’s never done before sounds rather pretentious and ambitious but that was exactly what they did. Papaformigas was born!
Half a century of musical experience joins heads and their melting pot contains a fresh blend of the finest herbs like Klezmer, Balkan, Ska, Reggae and Polka. Bring that to the boil and add a large amount of soul for extra flavor, and there you have it: World music from the continent of Peat, Spirits & Healthy Suspicion; sounds just about right.
