Barcelona Gipsy Klezmer Orchestra has been thrilling audiences all over Europe with their soulful, vibrant show of traditional and popular Gipsy and Jewish music from Eastern Europe. BGKO is an international ensemble based in Barcelona, renowned for exploring musical roots, specific timbres and forgotten styles, and for creating and performing with outstanding personality.
BGKO is made of six musicians from around the world, playing clarinet, double bass, accordion, guitar, lead vocals, percussion etc. Coming 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.
The group’s debut album, IMBARCA (Satélite K, 2014) was listed in the Best Ethnic Music Albums in 2014 on Spanish National Radio, while Djelem Djelem has over 1.5 Million visits on YouTube. IMBARCA was also the first album presented at all FNAC stores in Barcelona.
Their new album will be released in 2015, featuring legendary guests from Macedonia, Slovenia and Turkey.
As in the best Gypsy and Jewish traditions, ever enriched by exchanges with other migrant musicians, BGKO has also created a large musical family of artists, musicians, singers etc.
