Performers at Blue Mountains Music Festival 2019
Inquisitive, playful and imaginative, this acclaimed Danish 5-piece takes an anarchic approach to traditional musical structures. Meaning "intoxication and strength", Afenginn delivers extraordinary suites of sound, fuelled with 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 worldwide reputation for excellence and innovation. Their music ranges from lyrical and symphonic compositions, to high octane songs in odd time signatures with a special rhythmic and melodic finesse which characterises Afenginn
Winners of six Danish Music Awards in the categories Composer of the Year, Best World Album of the Year and Contemporary Folk Artist, Afenginn made have toured in Australia in 2014 and 2015, performing at Woodford, Cygnet and Illawarra Folk Festivals. They held audiences of all ages in the palms of their hands, receiving standing ovations wherever they went.
