AWIL/CC 97 London Gypsy Orchestra

  Mighty music magic from the Balkans and beyond by London Gypsy Orchestra on this AWIL! Click:

There’s always extra excitement at A World In London when we welcome local bands from our capital especially with the challenge of cramming ten merry music-makers into the studio! On this occasion London Gypsy Orchestra were our guests and even with just half of their key players it was a tight fit! Even tighter was their musicianship, navigating tricky time signatures, complicated chord changes, and loads of languages in songs from traditional Roma routes. Magic Violin and Tatcho Drom visionary Gundula Gruen created LGO back in 2004 setting it up as a registered charity to promote traveller & gypsy musical culture. Anyone with reasonable musical ability can join – even me, LOL! – and betwixt the fiddles & accordions at AWIL yesterday was also an assortment of lawyers, decorators, and social workers. But passion & a sense of adventure are also a must to enjoy the exhilarating musical journey through Armenia, Russia, Greece, and more. Ditto if you’re in the audience when LGO take to the stage in London soon! See them on Oct 15th @ The Crypt, St. Giles Church, Camberwell Church St, London SE5 8JB and Nov 6th @ The Gallery Cafe, 21 Old Ford Rd, London E2 9PL.
