Buffo's Wake


Buffo’s Wake formed in Brighton, UK, in the winter of 2009, with the idea of combining traditional Eastern European folk music and instrumentation, with the modern aesthetics of Punk and Rock. They have been developing their sound ever since, incorporating elements of dark cabaret, 30’s Swing and even drum and bass, as well as extending and furthering their understanding and experience of the traditional folk music that inspires their song writing.


This unique sound has developed alongside a frenetic live show, incorporating circus performances, audience interaction, natural showmanship and a fair few stage invasions! During a typical Buffo’s Wake performance, you can expect to hear traditional Ukrainian folk music, jump up DNB, and even Norwegian classical excerpts, whilst hearing lyrics inspired by Russian folk-tales updated for the modern day and dancing to Big Band bangers – all played with the raw visceral energy of a Punk band.
