17 Hippies

The band 17 Hippies was first formed in the mid-nineties in Berlin by a number of musicians who, in their weekly meeting, would play another instruments than the ones each was most accustomed to. Even then they were mixing things up, and in the music they make, zydeco and klezmer, Cajun and Balkan music (to name some of the sounds that move the band) come together as though they all were destined eventually to join one another in just such arrangements.
