Barcelona Gipsy Balkan Orchestra (BGKO)
The Cutting Room

Based in Barcelona, BGKO is an international ensemble offering unique reinterpretations of Balkan, Middle Eastern and Mediterranean music, mixing traditional songs with jazz manouche, or gypsy jazz, and rockabilly. Their music is a reflection of the diversity of the musicians’ home countries which include Catalonia, Spain, Italy, France, Serbia, Greece, and Ukraine, as well as Barcelona’s vibrant music scene.

For BGKO, Balkan music is a set of musical traditions and multiethnic cultures that surpass geographical confines, drawing on the historical traditions that have forever inhabited these lands: Ashkenazi and Sephardic Jews, Gypsies, Ottomans, Arabs, and so on.

Tickets: $30 in advance | $40 day of show
