New album already avaliable
“Del Ebro al Danubio” consists of 12 striking soundscapes that serve as a bridge between different cultures that BGKO was inspired by: Romanian, Russian and Serbian gypsy songs; purifying Hungarian, Transylvanian, Klezmer and Albanian dances; contemplative melodies of Lebanese Arabic-Catalan tradition, Jewish and Bosnian sevdah.
On the 5th of October we presented our new album, ‘Del Ebro al Danubio’ (‘From Ebro to Danube’), in Sala Apolo and we are pleased to say it was a great success.
We would like to thank you all for creating such a vibrant atmosphere and joining us in this special moment: the start of a new era for Barcelona Gipsy balKan Orchestra!
Many thanks to all the guest musicians, the people who work every day to make BGKO grow, the various professionals who collaborated with us, always with creativity and enthusiasm, and all of you who support us by spreading our music!
