Afenginn is, among other things, a roaring Balkan party, a melody of Nordic melancholic moods and a mixture of super dynamic live shows. Formed in 2002 and with three albums to their name, Afenginn is a wellcalibrated body of music - full of bouncy beans and melodic percussion. The five-piece orchestra have played energetic shows all over the world; most recently seen at such festivals as SXSW (Austin, Texas), Penang World Music Festival (Malaysia), By: Larm (Norway) and SPOT, (Denmark). Press release - \'Reptilica Polaris\' Reborn as a reptile With a majestic male choir and 12-piece brassband Afenginn are reborn with a concept album about love, anger and the silent self-consumption of creatures. Conceived as one large composition, in this way Reptilica Polaris differs from Afenginn\'s previous albums - the award winning instrumentals Retrograd (2004) and Akrobakkus (2006). World class Volapük Reptilica Polaris is an amalgam of Latin, Finnish, Swedish and Spanish lyrics. It shares the peaceful intentions seen in languages like Esperanto and Volapük. \'Omedelbart derivare Albatrosso, Kamikaze pirat aus septa mare\', says Timo Haapaniemi, the man behind the all-devouring universal lyrics. Feast and food for body and soul Reptilica Polaris is carefully put together with elements from Afenginn\'s universal \'bastard\' genre and an explosively expanded orchestra - it is a melody of genuine symphonic and dynamic terrarium-punk, one that you'll only hear from Afenginn. Reptilica Polaris is an album you don't want to miss - even when the party is over. Line-up: Kim Nyberg (mandolin) Rasmus Krøyer (clarinet, bass clarinet) Niels Skovmand (violin) Aske Jacoby (bass) Rune Kofoed (drums) Majestic male choir 12-piece brassband.
