Home Of Art had the honour to host Barcelona Gipsy Klezmer Orchestra’s 1st (and 2nd!) concert in Amsterdam on June 1 (and 2) 2015.
Barcelona Gigpy Klezmer Orchestra (BGKO) has been thrilling audiences all over Europe with their soulful, vibrant show of traditional and popular Balkan, Gipsy and Jewish music from Eastern Europe. BGKO is an international ensemble based in Barcelona, well-known for exploring musical roots, creating and performing with outstanding personality.
BGKO is composed of six musicians from around the world. Originally from Serbia, Italy, France, Spain, Greece and India, BGKO’s musicians connected in Barcelona over their passion for Balkan music with their own special perspective. Their particular style comes from klezmer music, gipsy Jazz and Romani music as well as from their exploration of forgotten music styles, specific timbres and flavours from regions around Eastern Europe. BGKO has also been inspired by Barcelona’s eclectic music scene, from Latin-American melodies, traditional Catalan and Middle Eastern music to electrifying Jazz and Rockabilly.
