“Marijo deli bela Kumrijo”
“Marijo deli bela Kumrijo”, a jewel of Balkan music comes to us as a taste of the new album scheduled for September 2020.
This traditional Serbian song, from Kosovo, from the Gora region and written in Torlak dialect, conveys the sorrow of the protagonist for the remoteness of the beloved.
French filmmaker Ulysse Paya, who we are very thankful for his endless creativity, renews the vision of this concept in this visual piece of art.
A new era begins for BGKO, with renewed energies and great enthusiasm, for which we are fortunate to have the freshness and drive of a good friend and singer as first collaboration in this new adventure… Margherita Abita (Italy, Sicily)
We choose a great shiny Čoček to reflect this spirit: “Kalejaca Jaca”, a very cheerful and danceable rumba from Macedonia that constitutes our tribute to Esma Redžepova, “Queen of Gipsy Music”, as you can appreciate in our brand new video recorded in Barcelona by french filmmaker Ulysse Paya.
“Selma” – Božo Vrećo Feat. Barcelona Gipsy balKan Orchestra
🔍 BGKO explores its creativity contributing with arrangements to a song with music and lyrics by Bosnian singer and songwriter Božo Vrećo, a great performer of traditional Sevdah music and a breaker of molds and stereotypes in the Balkan society.
🎬 A love story explained by French filmmaker Ulysse Paya, our dreammaker, who we are very thankful for ❤️ and to all those making it possible.

“Čekurjankino Horo” / “Chekuryankino Horo”
Last gift for our fans in 2019 is a new BGKO instrumental jewel that has everything we love in a traditional Bulgarian tune. It’s the perfect balance between trance and dance, thanks to its 7 beat rhythm, the minor and major interplay, the riffs and the tempo evolution. An explosive cocktail of Balkan melodies! . Recorded by Elgatovisual.net
“Hora Lui Vishan”
BGKO instrumental strength is alive, as you can appreciate in this arrangement made on this powerful piece we discovered from romanian accordion player Marcel Budală. Recorded by Elgatovisual.net
