The London Gypsy Orchestra is the largest ensemble of its kind in Western Europe, with 45 enthusiastic musicians from a diverse range of cultures and backgrounds. Led by violinist and singer Gundula Gruen, their repertoire of Eastern European and Balkan music is as eclectic as their performances are energetic.

With the support of Awards for All, LGO is yet again on a journey into the depth of Gypsy traditions.
